Discussion Questions

  • What happens when the patient does not have a primary care provider?
      • Do we need a separate flow diagram and agreed upon expectations for who does what andwhen in this situation which is fairly common?
      • How will this change the expectations regarding appointments and the timing of follow-up?
  • Do we need specific, agreed-upon criteria that will guide the clinical triage of patients at the time of discharge? Or, is it okay to leave this to the clinical judgment of the discharging provider?
  • What strategies are likely to be most effective in building accountability and responsiveness among community physicians for their proactiveparticipation in the patient hand-off’s?
      • What are the barriers for community physicians and how can we overcome them most effectively? 
      • What do community physicians need to be most effective?
  • Are hospitals/emergency departments organized and resourced in the most effective way to effectively facilitate the hand-off’s and provide information?
      • What do hospitals/emergency departments need to be most effective?
