Information flow when a patient has a non-VA acute care encounter. Event notifications are sent via the regional HIE network to the VA for patients in all arms. A coordinator at the VA enters the notification as a note into the EHR for the primary care team to review and co-sign for patients enrolled in arms 1 and 2. For patients in arm 2, a care transition intervention is activated for 30 days post-discharge.
