“…In addition, associated with the insufficient number of professionals, namely physicians, they culminate in the lack of close monitoring of the patients, which leads to the demand for emergency services. The results of this study are corroborated by other authors who report that patients without a close follow-up resort to the emergency department more frequently, despite the fact that hospitalizations are not only expensive, but are also potentially harmful to the health of the older population (31)(32)(33)(34) , therefore contrasting with the recommendation of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, which estimates that 30% of the hospital activity in Portugal could be done in the community (3) .…”

“…People admitted to hospitals are vulnerable to experiencing care continuity loss when there are alterations in their health condition or when they are transferred between care institutions (16) . This poses a remarkable challenge for health systems to guarantee the execution of a set of actions whose objective is ensuring care continuity between different care levels (17) , which helps in the process of adapting to the new care reality (15)(16)(17) .
