Project Team

MIRROR-TCM is a multi-site initiative replicating the Transitional Care Model (TCM) in three health systems

The Penn Coordinating Center, led by Mary Naylor, is collaborating with three health system partners to replicate the TCM as demonstrated in prior NIH funded clinical trials. The group is also examining challenges to implementation in the context of COVID-19 and assisting partners to implement the TCM with fidelity. Importantly, partners collaborated on the design of a governance model to guide implementation of this project across health systems as well as unique models to oversee implementation of the TCM within each organization.
