Leveraging Technology to Support Safer Transitions of Care
Post-hospital contact with a primary care team is an established pillar of safe transitions. The prevailing model of telephone outreach is usually limited in scope and operationally burdensome. In this session, Eric Bressman, MD, MSHP, Fellow, National Clinician Scholars Program, University of Pennsylvania and Corporal Michael J. Crescenz VA Medical Center will share learnings from a study to evaluate use of an automated text message-based program to reduce hospitalizations and emergency department visits.
IN THIS SERIES, ATTENDEES WILL:
1. Learn how an automated hovering strategy can help taper the cliff drop in medical supervision when patients are discharged to home.
2. Understand how the availability of telemedicine after discharge can improve access to care and promote equity.
