Discharge Planning: Inpatient Psychiatric Facilities (IPF) Mobile App
The information provided in the Discharge Planning: Inpatient Psychiatric Facilities (IPF) app is intended to be a general summary.
How does it work?
The app provides information about Medicare discharge planning. Discharge planning is conducted to plan for when a patient or resident leaves a care setting. Health care professional(s) and the patient or resident participate in discharge planning activities. IPFs, which are classified as psychiatric hospitals or psychiatric units, provide the patient with acute psychiatric treatment that can reasonably be expected to improve his or her condition.
