A. In the case of physician hand-offs, the process may vary among different specialties or settings of care. For a given setting or patient population or specialty, the process should be reasonably standardized in order that sufficient patient-specific information is consistently communicated to facilitate continuity of care and patient safety. Whatever the details of the hand-off process, there must be a defined minimum set of data about each patient that must be communicated when responsibility for the patient’s care is handed off.
