Facilitate safe, effective discharge planning to promote recovery and reduce readmissions.
The MorCare Discharge Planning module helps care managers coordinate effective discharge planning by assessing patients’ risk, based upon both physical and psycho-social needs. The goal is to design a practical plan for each individual patient based upon their condition and personal factors that will promote the most optimal recovery strategy and minimize any chance for unnecessary hospital readmission.
How it works: Our Discharge Planning system integrates with our Care Management’s Utilization Review and Management features. The software allows managers to enter discharge planning assessments, document patient and family needs and interventions, refer patients to social workers and other hospital support staff, and schedule follow-up reviews.
