The days following discharge are some of the most critical points on the care continuum. Patients may be adapting to newly diagnosed conditions, learning new routines, or simply trying to readjust to life as normal. Although you’ve given them the best care possible under your roof, their health hinges on their ability to follow care plans, adhere to medications, and care for themselves once they’ve left your facility. It’s integral that every patient receive communications after they’ve left the hospital to ensure they understand their care plan and have everything they need, but doing that outreach manually can put additional strain on nursing teams. CipherHealth’s Post-Discharge Outreach solutions leverage automated outreach tools to follow up with every one of your patients in the way that makes sense for them. Customize outreach for conditions and individuals, reduce preventable readmissions, and offer real-time help for patients that need it.
