Discharge Communication | Vocera

Vocera Good to Go® Patient Discharge Communication

Improve patient understanding of discharge instructions to reduce readmissions

Patients who understand their post-hospital care instructions are 30% less likely to be readmitted to the hospital.1 The award-winning Vocera Good to Go solution is proven to help hospitals improve patient satisfaction with patient discharge communication and reduce avoidable readmissions.

Using an iOS device, nurses record live discharge instructions and teach back sessions at the patient's bedside, as well as attach pictures, videos and personalized educational materials that can be accessed by the patient, family members and other caregivers on any device, at any time, anywhere. Vocera Good to Go also creates and sends appointment reminders, tasks and care messages to patients, ensuring they are informed, educated and empowered after they leave the hospital.
