planning and using edischarge
Planning and Using eDischarge
  • You can start planning the Patient’s discharge immediately and update the record accordingly – you don’t need to complete it in order
  • The admission/discharge document is ‘live’ throughout admission and can be built up by any authorised person at any point during this time
  • For clarity abbreviations should not be usedin free text areas
  • The printed copy will be used by the ward clerk to update PAS with accurate data
  • You can facilitate the Additional Discharge Information field as a tool to negate the need to produce a follow up letter
