The primary outcome was a continuous measure of time to first psychiatric outpatient treatment follow-up during the first 45 days after hospital discharge. To calculate rates of follow-up, we also categorized the outcome by whether the visit occurred within the first seven or 30 days following by: 4. OBJECTIVE: This study examined whether patients discharged from inpatient psychiatric care would have lower rehospitalization rates if they kept an outpatient follow-up appointment after S: Complete data were collected in on 3, psychiatric admissions in eight Southeastern states; were readmissions.

Poor health literacy has been identified as an important threat to patient safety, particularly through potentially contributing to adverse drug events. This workshop report reveals how health literacy affects patients' abilities to follow discharge instructions and makes recommendations to improve after-visit summaries to augment patient understanding of directions.
On average, % of discharges received follow-up care within seven days and % within 30 days across all facilities and states.
Average facility-level day follow-up rates ranged from % to % across states. [A table showing state-level follow-up rates is available as an online supplement.] On average, day IPF follow-up rates Cited by: 1. Several prior interventional studies to improve the care transition from hospital to outpatient care have successfully deterred readmissions.
14 In these trials, facilitating early PCP follow-up is just one component of a larger intervention, 15 and a systemic review noted that the interventions were heterogeneous and often consisted of.
Meeting the operational demand for beds. One of the HoEFT’s key performance indicators is to promote patient discharge by 1pm. Models used to determine bed capacity management and short-stay emergency care indicate that, if a patient’s discharge is facilitated by 1pm, the hospital has sufficient capacity to carry out elective work and accommodate patients admitted as an emergency without.

However, we found that no patient who received hypertension-specific discharge instructions completed follow up within our timeline. In our context, it is unclear whether formal discharge instructions provide the same benefit as Cited by: 2.
RNs and NPs in a discharge support or facilitation role have been shown to have a positive impact in earlier completion of discharges, improved rates of outpatient follow-up, and increased patient satisfaction.

Terri Ann Parnell agreed with Myers and added that it is easy to lose sight of the fact that these documents are the patient’s and that they have to be created and used with the patient always at the center of the process.
In this study, a nurse practitioner (NP) was assigned to a resident inpatient medical team at a tertiary care hospital, with the specific responsibility of facilitating the discharge process. The NP's responsibilities included arranging follow-up appointments, performing medication reconciliation, and following up on tests pending at discharge.
Our primary outcome measure was an expedited post-discharge follow up ≤3 days of discharge. A three-day endpoint defined expedited follow up since it represents the conservative end of the range in the outpatient PE literature 3 and is commonly used in research on telephone follow up, both after hospitalization and ED care.
