The solution addresses communication challenges that arise during patient transitions
LOUISVILLE, Ky. & BOSTON: Bamboo Health™ today announced its latest innovation, Discharge Summaries, an enhancement to the company’s existing nationwide Pings platform. The innovative solution is designed to resolve communication issues encountered when patients leave the hospital, ensuring effective and punctual post-discharge care directly through its Pings workflow.
"Discharge Summaries has been a game-changer for our network, especially for the coordination in the continuum. We have post-acute provider partners using this product to seamlessly transition patients,” said Michelle Bednarek, program manager at Triad HealthCare Network. “We’ve used the Pings platform for years to alert us when a patient is discharged but now, we can quickly see the instructions they received from the hospital, their upcoming appointments, their medication list, etc., and we know whether they need to be seen right away to avoid ending up back in the emergency department again.”
When a patient moves from an acute care setting to facilities like Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF), it demands efficient communication among all caregivers. Manual patient discharge reports, which include vital information prepared by a patient’s caregivers, often get lost in the shuffle. These summaries contain crucial details, such as medication lists and follow-up appointments. However, accessing these digitally can be challenging due to proprietary electronic health record (EHR) systems.
"Communication gaps in post-discharge care can lead to care delays, treatment errors, unnecessary procedures and even patient harm leading to readmissions. In fact, one study found that adverse events occurred after patient discharge 19-23% of the time," said Russell Olsen, chief product officer of Bamboo Health. "Our Discharge Summaries solution not only adds pertinent clinical context to Pings alerts but also provides real-time access to essential patient data. This empowers healthcare providers to prioritize patients with urgent care needs, which improves quality, reduces overall costs, and also enhances revenue opportunities for the organization."
Bamboo Health's Discharge Summaries offers game-changing advantages:
With Bamboo Health's Discharge Summaries, healthcare organizations can now ensure a smoother transition for patients, enhancing quality, cost and satisfaction.
