In this paper we present a longitudinal perspective of exchange of information providers in hospital and home health care. More specifically we address how this practice has changed over the last six years. In three different studies we have investigated how the information exchange between hospital and home health care throughout a patient transition from admission to discharge has changed over the last six years. The information processes have gone from being mainly paper-based to being digitalized. However, there are still professional challenges to overcome which may contribute to improvements for patients in transition.
