Reduce Hospital Re-Admission Rates by Improving Patient Support during Transitions in CareJune 6, 2013
Effectively supporting patients during transitions in care and reducing re-admission rates requires improving communications between providers and their patients and giving patients the information they need to understand their condition and treatment plan. Through the creation of interactive, personalized patient care plans written in easy to understand lay-language, doctors can provide patients with the information they need about their condition, what treatments they have had to date, next steps in their care plan, what to do in case of adverse events, and notes for their next visit. Having this information easily accessible gives patients added care and comfort away from their doctor. Most significantly, it contributes to reducing unnecessary hospital re-admissions and any associated penalties.
