Discharge Instructions for Healthcare Professionals Mobile App

The Discharge Instructions for Healthcare Professionals mobile app was designed for healthcare providers who discharge patients after surgery. The electronic discharge planning form replaces paper forms and is accessible from any smartphone or tablet. This makes it easy to generate post-operative patient care instructions from anywhere in the field.

The patient discharge app covers medication instructions, transition record, in-home care and after care instructions, and follow-up care instructions with hospital staff, primary care team members and other health care providers. The app provides helpful details for family caregivers and helps increase patient safety once they have left the emergency department or surgery center. Offering a convenient method for delivering patient-centered care, the health care instructions are automatically saved in electronic format for the patient's medical record and can be updated by healthcare providers during post-operative visits.
