Cerner Collaboration No. 23: Discharge Process
May 17, 2010, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Debbie Carter, Banner Health. Housewide discharge went live at Banner with the focus of an interdisciplinary team discharge approach. Banner built functionality with CPOE in mind so the focus was on their six CPOE facilities, but implemented parts of the workflow throughout Banner to get the workflows solidified prior to CPOE conversions this year. They are on 2007.19 code, and utilized the Depart functionality but added ancillary discharge recommendations which the provider reviews during the depart process. The key to the success of this project is the use of a “pending discharge” order which triggers ancillary involvement in the discharge process. This process encourages daily discharge rounds and the use of an Interdisciplinary Discharge Screening Powerform. Debbie covers the workflow, build, rules, and the education efforts.
