The timely communication of accurate and legible discharge summaries is a key performance target for hospitals.
The latest NHS directive urges hospitals to carry out at least 35 per cent of discharges before midday, to help prevent delayed discharges. EMIS Health’s eDischarge solution combines electronic discharge summaries and medicines management workflow, and helps meet these targets.
By capturing all relevant patient information throughout the patient’s journey, information can be kept up to date more easily and follow ups and referrals can be prepared in advance, saving time for clinicians and staff.
eDischarge provides seamless handover between secondary and primary care for the ongoing care of patients after their episode of care in hospital.
