Project: The Truth about Discharge Summaries: Tertiary Medicine to Community
The focus of Dr. Fink’s CQIP project was on improving transfers and handovers between tertiary care and the community. Safe handovers require timely sharing of concise, reliable information about patients. After reviewing a week’s worth of discharge summaries from internal medicine, Dr. Fink found that while the quality of information was good there are often delays in making that information available. He introduced a number of process improvements aimed at improving timeliness of information sharing. View his poster to learn more about his project!
