MJ Tran: Healthcare Heroes

Granger Medical Clinic tasked MJ Tran with
solving one of healthcare’s most complex problems – helping patients transition from an in-patient
setting back to their homes with all of the tools and information they need to continue
healing and avoid readmission. Over the last year, Tran has spread the message
about transitional care management or TCM to home care and hospice agencies, skilled
nursing facilities, hospitals and long-term acute hospitals as well as in the classroom
setting for nursing and care management students at the University of Utah. Tran says, “I am a firm believer that there
should be no trade secrets in healthcare.” As a result of the healthcare partnership
she and Granger Medical Clinic have cultivated with healthcare organizations throughout the
state, its TCM program has reduced hospital readmission rates by half and improved patient
outcomes. She states, “The most rewarding feeling throughout
the past few years is seeing our community unite as a team of cheerleaders for our patients,
working collaboratively rather than individuals. Now when our patients succeed, we all succeed.”
