In many studies, ineffective hand-off communications have been a primary contributing factor in adverse events. This is why the Center launched the Hand-off Communications project in 2009. Ten of the Center’s collaborating hospitals and health systems examined their hand-off communication issues, identified their specific causes for failures and barriers to improvement, and then identified, implemented, and validated solutions that improved their performance.
