"SmartCare...allows us to care for our patients in a more meaningful way while serving them quickly and efficiently, and being aware of their true condition day or night."

Hospital discharge plans are a big part of reducing readmissions, yet surprisingly, there is no standardized hospital discharge tool; subsequently, hospitals are largely creating their own tools and readjusting them as needed.
While we focus on enhanced communication and increased patient engagement during Patient Safety Awareness Week, we must ensure that this communication extends beyond a patient's stay in our facility and accompanies them out the door - be that back home or to another care facility.
