The trust found its current process for discharging patients (when a patient was medically ready) relied on the opinion of individual staff — who would liaise with the consultant to finalise the process. This way of working disrupted patient flow and meant patients had to remain in hospital for longer.
Bradford District Care Foundation Trust created a live system with up-to-date clinical information to enable ward teams and clinical managers to make safe clinical decisions that support timely discharge.
This case study shares what the trust did to developed a live system that holds ‘at a glance’ up-to-date, robust clinical information to enable ward teams and clinical managers make safe clinical decisions to support timely discharge.
