Helping to improve hospital discharge process with patient flow

In most hospitals, discharge is being planned from the moment a patient arrives in the hospital. A Patient Flow solution should support the hospital discharge process by providing everyone involved with accurate, real-time information regarding every patient’s progress.

Discharge coordinators often have to rely on phone calls, paper records, visits to wards and attending every ward/board round to find the information they need to plan each patient’s safe discharge. If they can get the very latest picture with at-a-glance visibility, they can manage the process better and more easily identify exceptions.
