Electronic Discharge

PatientSource's electronic discharge module allows doctors to discharge patients safely and efficiently. Test results and medications can be automatically imported from the electronic patient record. Discharge prescriptions (TTOs) are automatically checked. Automated coding (for NHS) and itemised billing (for private healthcare) ensures you get paid for everything you do.

PatientSource's electronic discharge module tracks a patient from the moment they enter to the moment they leave your hospital. It allows patients to be discharged with discharge letters and medications where appropriate. It automatically inserts information from the patient's drugs chart, investigations and casenotes to save clinician time. Discharge medications can be cross-checked by pharmacists and are subject to the same drugs database checks as our ePrescribing module.

Our unique external pharmacy interface allows for patients to opt to pay for and have their medications delivered to their home by a third party pharmacist, thus eliminating the time spent on the ward waiting for medications. This saves hospitals money and bed space as patients leave earlier and do not draw on hospital stock.

All data is auditable, and can be used to display real-time bed occupancy status.

Our Electronic Discharges solution is one module of our modular platform, meaning it can be purchased as a stand-alone solution or as part of a wider PatientSource system.
