Hoag Health Using Korean and Persian Discharge Instructions Content from Discharge 1-2-3

The multilingual capabilities in Discharge 123 have allowed us to provide a new level of service and clinical excellence in the care of our remarkably diverse emergency patient population. Dr. Seric Cusick

Discharge 1-2-3® recently released Korean and Persian (Farsi) language content for use by Discharge 1-2-3’s hospital clients and EMR partners through its award winning Composer® software or content libraries. This new multilingual patient content provides high quality customizable discharge instructions and patient education. Discharge 1-2-3’s Composer® software, with the Korean and Persian (Farsi) content, is already being used by Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian in Orange County, CA in conjunction with its Allscripts Sunrise EMR system.

Hospitals are now able to quickly and easily create bilingual customized discharge instructions and patient education in both Korean and Persian (Farsi) that are patient-specific and evidence-based. Using Discharge 1-2-3’s patent-pending solution, clinicians can easily customize patient instructions in a foreign language even if the user doesn’t speak that language. Instructions can be created in a side-by-side bilingual format that reduces barriers to communication. Foreign language content for Discharge 1-2-3 is now available in Spanish, Chinese, Arabic, French, Vietnamese, Russian, Korean, Persian (Farsi), and Somali is under development.

“The multilingual capabilities in Discharge 123 have allowed us to provide a new level of service and clinical excellence in the care of our remarkably diverse emergency patient population. The side by side language presentation puts providers, nurses, patients, and families at ease at the time of discharge,” said Dr. Seric Cusick, Emergency Physician at Hoag. More than 43% of people in the state of California speak a language other than English at home, according to a report issued by the US Census.

Headquartered in Schaumburg, IL, Discharge 1-2-3 - Callibra, Inc. is a Patient Document Technology Company and past winner of the Chicago Innovation Award. Fully integrated or interfaced into all major EMR systems, such as Epic, Allscripts, Meditech, Picis, CMR, EDIMS, and others, Discharge 1-2-3 solutions are used in hundreds of hospitals for tens of millions of patient discharges annually. http://www.discharge123.com/
