Abstract

Discharge planners and case managers need to play a more central role in the decision-making process related to the selection of a NH, especially because decisions are time-limited and can benefit from a well-planned discharge planning program that uses a variety of data on quality and costs. The widespread use of Internet-based information sources can be expanded to aid this process.
