Johns Hopkins, Mayo Clinic, and Cleveland are demanding institutions, and we're proud to have earned their trust.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 18, 2013
Three of the four top hospitals on the just-released US News and World Report’s Top Hospitals Honor Roll rely on Discharge 1-2-3 for patient discharge instructions. The Honor Roll ranks Johns Hopkins as #1, Mayo Clinic at #3, and Cleveland Clinic #4. Each of these institutions provide Discharge 1-2-3’s discharge instructions and patient education in their EMR for patients following visits to the Emergency Department, regardless of what EMR system they use.
“Johns Hopkins, Mayo, and Cleveland Clinic are very demanding institutions, and we’re proud to have earned their trust,” said Dr. Chris Galassi, CEO and Technical Director of Discharge 1-2-3 – Callibra, Inc. “They provide their clinicians with the best tools, and expect the best outcomes for their patients. We listen carefully to physicians from these and other leading medical centers to make sure that we meet and exceed their exacting needs.”
Hospitals give their patients discharge instructions in order to fully inform them about their diagnoses and the care they received, educate them about their illness, and provide clear guidelines for continued care at home, including, most importantly, when to seek further medical attention. This sounds relatively straight-forward, but it’s not easy to efficiently create instructions that are based on the latest medical evidence, are customized for each patient’s specific condition, are easy to understand, and automatically become part of the patient’s electronic medical record. Patients often complain that their instructions are vague, lengthy, and contain jargon they don’t comprehend. Clinicians don’t like having to spend so much time editing. Lower quality discharge instructions can contribute to higher readmissions, reduced patient satisfaction, and higher risks for the hospital and clinicians.
