Care Transitions from Hospital to Home:

Discharge Planning



Discharge Planning is a strategy to engage patients and family members in the transition from hospital to home, with the goal of reducing adverse events and preventable readmissions. A Discharge Strategy can be used on its own or in conjunction with other initiatives, including RED (Re-engineering Discharge), the Care Transitions program, and BOOSTing (Better Outcomes for Older Adults Through Safe Transitions) Care Transitions.

    Non-Adherence is the major controllable cause of preventable rehospitalizations.


    In a poll of U.S. individuals 65 years old and older who use medications, researchers found that 51% take at least five different prescription drugs regularly, and one in four take between 10 and 19 pills each day. 57% of those polled admit that they forget to take their medications. Among those using five or more medications, 63% say they forget doses, compared to 51% among those who take fewer medicines. | Home Page (www.epill.com) | Clinical Studies | Proportion of Days Covered Definition | Pill Dispenser Pharmacy Filling Program | Link Productivity / Medication Adherence | Published Data | CAGE Questionnaire | Portable Automatic Pill Dispenser used in Kidney Transplant Organ Rejection Study.
