Better Education and Communication = Key to a Successful Discharge?

Posted by @e32crew in About Kids & Teens, Nov 1, 2012

A recent article highlights a painful, personal and confusing experience following discharge from a hospital.

The author, Jessie Gruman, Founder and President of the Center for Advancing Health, uses this example to offer some practical tips for hospitals to employ on improving communication with patients.

This latest article on Transformative Health also highlights Interactive Patient Care (IPC) as a tool that can have a significant impact in this realm.

Can you see technologies like this having an impact? What are some other tools or areas that hospitals can explore on improving communication to patients and discharge outcomes?
