PArTNER is a transitional care model for Minority-Serving Institutions (MSIs) that aims to increase support to patients and caregivers at the hospital through their transition home. The PArTNER transitional care model strengthens the bridge between hospital and home by adding two supports— a community health worker acting as a patient navigator and a peer coach via a telephone support line.
