Patients who understand their post-hospital care instructions are 30% less likely to be readmitted to the hospital.
Improve the patient’s understanding of their care plan, enhance the patient’s experience while in the hospital, and lessen the likelihood of readmission.
• The Nurse Leader can record live instructions and teach-back sessions at the patient’s bedside and make them available for patients, family members, and caregivers to access anytime during and after the patient’s stay. The ability to reference these recordings after discharge can improve understanding of the care plan. For example, nurses can record a range of helpful content such as a video of a complex wound dressing change or audio recording of discharge instructions. Any care team member can use Good to Go. The surgeon may record advice on which post-surgery symptoms merit a call to the physician’s
office or the dietitian provides a verbal description of specialized dietary restrictions with compliant meal suggestions.
• Staff can securely capture and send pictures, videos, and education materials over a platform designed to help you meet HIPAA requirements. Staff can also send appointment reminders, tasks, and care messages.
• The software monitors patients retrieving and engaging with instructions, enabling the care team to determine patient engagement and offer support to help improve care compliance.
Following up with patients by phone within 48 to 72 hours after hospital discharge improves patient satisfaction and helps reduce readmissions.
