Discharge Coordination

Discharge and Transition Coordination

Transitions between facilities and providers can expose patients to preventable errors and adverse events.  Patient discharge from the intensive care unit (ICU) to an acute care is one of the most challenging and high-risk transitions of care.

For receiving providers to effectively continue care following transfer, crucial information on patient conditions, tests performed, and treatments received is communicated  between providers.  An effective transition is rooted in a solid, choreographed process to provide accurate, thorough and vital patient care information.

This process ensures that the transfer of accountability and responsibility for the continued care of the patient is successful with no interruption in care.
