Individuals who are frequently admitted to the hospital have high levels of multimorbidity, polypharmacy, and functional impairment,1 and the sudden reduction in intensity of care in the posthospital period may contribute to high rates of hospital readmission.2–5 A multidisciplinary follow-up clinic for frequently admitted patients was piloted to address demonstrated gaps in transitional care.6 This report describes the patient perspective of care in this model.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
