Got Transition has developed two different measurement approaches, described below, to assess the extent to which the Six Core Elements of Health Care Transition 2.0 are being incorporated into clinical processes. Both are aligned with the AAP/AAFP/ACP's Clinical Report on Transition and the Six Core Elements.
- Current Assessment of Health Care Transition Activities. This is a qualitative self-assessment method that allows individual providers, practices, or networks to determine the level of health care transition support currently available to young adults transitioning from pediatric to adult health care. It is intended to provide a current snapshot of how far along a practice is in implementing the Six Core Elements.
- Health Care Transition Process Measurement Tool. This is an objective scoring method, with documentation specifications, that allows a practice or network to assess progress in implementing the Six Core Elements and, eventually, dissemination to all young adults ages 18 to 26. It is intended to be conducted at the start of a transition improvement initiative as a baseline measure and then repeated periodically to assess progress.
