    so what is ideal? 5 parties need to be engaged to talk together 1) the patient/family 2) the sending doctor 3) the sending nurse 4) the receiving doctor and 5 the receiving nurse. The minimum is for the sending doctor in the presence of the patient & family calls the receiving doctor and relates the history and expectations — the family asks questions and is allowed to voice their expectations for the new setting. Yes this does happen about 1% of the time. In this age of the cell phone there is really no excuse for anything less. Communication at transitions is SUPER important — the person who suffers a lack of communication is the patient not the doctor or nurse. An app that schedules the parties to do the communication either audio or video might be a help — an app to do the communication seems like a race to the bottom — just slightly better than no communication.
