Quality improvement is a key component of the INTERACT program. On a regular basis, hospital transfers should be reviewed to see if there are opportunities to educate staff and improve care.

This QI tool is designed to help analyze hospital transfers (including ER visits, observation stay and admissions) and identify opportunities to reduce transfers that might be preventable.
