Discharge Planning: Hospitals Mobile App
The Discharge Planning: Hospitals mobile app is a helpful tool for use in the hospital discharge process for Medicare patients.
How does it work?
When a patient or resident leaves a care setting, health care professionals participate in several activities, including processing discharge instructions, planning for post-acute care and settling any final billing issues.
With the app for patient discharge planning, any nursing facility, acute care hospital or other health care setting can quickly see what needs to be done during the discharge process, including the discharge evaluation and putting together the formal discharge papers. The app is easily accessible from any smartphone or tablet, offering a simple way to manage the hospital discharge process from anywhere in the field. It's a helpful way to track what needs to be done when a Medicare patient transitions to a rehabilitation facility or when a patient is sent home.
