Care Coordination Beyond Your Walls
DischargeCentral® (formerly eDischarge™) saves valuable time through automation, allowing clinicians more opportunities to care for patients and families, and more time for better collaboration with post-acute providers, even those using different EHRs. Our technology and best practices make coordinating transitions of care more efficient, leading to improvements like reduced readmissions, shortened length of stay and increased patient satisfaction.
“Reports help me identify facilities which are sending patients back, but I can also see which unit the patient was on before discharge.”
Secure Paperless Communication
Collaborate with providers without sending a fax or picking up the phone. There are more than 90,000 providers in the Curaspan Provider Data Bank™. You can communicate with any of them electronically – even those with different HIS and EHRs – via meaningful-use certified DischargeCentral. Once the patient chooses a provider, you can securely share clinical information so that the provider is ready for the patient’s arrival – and the patient can be discharged as soon as they’re medically ready.
Patient is Discharged
Care continues when the patient leaves the hospital. Get insight into the care patients receive at post-acute facilities by tracking provider trends and readmissions.With more than 50 standard reports, you can measure transition and readmission practices both inside and outside your hospital or IDN, and develop interventions that lead to more efficient, cost-effective care.
Extend Care to Home
Collaborate with home-health agencies without sending a fax or picking up the phone. Our Provider Data Bank contains thousands of providers – as close as next door and as far as across the country. Finding the right fit for any diagnosis requires a simple search. Bi-directional, electronic communication makes it even easier to verify the appropriate home health care agency in minutes, not hours.
Automate Your Outreach
78% of discharged patients do not understand their diagnosis, treatment, home care instructions or warning signs for when they should return to the hospital. Following up with every patient individually isn’t possible. Guessing based on diagnosis or history isn’t scalable. OutreachCentral™ allows you to reach 100% of patients discharged to home through automated phone calls, providing more time for clinical care and fewer readmissions.
