Abstract

Accurate, complete discharge information is essential to continuity of care when patients are discharged from hospital. Electronic methods have been suggested to improve the quality and timeliness of discharge information sent to GPs (primary care doctors). In February 2007, an electronic discharge summary system, InfoFlex, was introduced in Gloucestershire, UK. This system enables the hospital to send additional medicines-related information (medication changes, new medication indications and whether medicines should continue) to GPs.
