Coordination of Care
Coordination of care for patients being discharged following a hypertensive crisis (emergency or urgency) is critical to preventing future episodes. Communication with the usual provider or facilitating entry into a primary care practice for follow-up is vital. As widespread integrated electronic medical records, collaborative health care partnerships, and reimbursement incentives for ensuring follow-up care expand, arranging appropriate continuing care for patients after a hypertensive crisis should become less difficult.
