The discharge hub module assists the management of discharges, through clear identification discharge tasks, their status and who owns them, along with the actions required to progress the discharge. Patients can be assigned to a discharge pathway, so that only the relevant discharge tasks are shown for that patient.
The multi-disciplinary teams accessing the discharge hub can include social workers, community care providers, therapists, medical staff and hospital discharge coordinators. Updates to the patient status can be viewed and made from anywhere in the hospital or remotely. Reminders can be set to ensure tasks are undertaken at the appropriate point in a patient's stay and can be triggered from the expected date of discharge, length of stay or medically fit status.
By providing a clear, up-to-date view of all outstanding discharge tasks, staff work lists can be managed to ensure that patient intervention is correctly prioritised and that any issues which might result in a delayed discharge are addressed early in a patient's stay. When discharges are delayed, Cambio PFM provides a hospital wide view allowing improved prioritisation and management intervention as required.
The discharge hub can give visibility to onward care providers of likely demand and supports effective patient transfers between organisations.
