Patient Passport Program and Resources
We are getting close to starting a pilot program of the Patient Passport. The Patient Passport is similar to a travel passport but it is meant for people to use as they travel through the healthcare system. It will contain Advance Directives, Personal Preferences, Communication Contact Information, CPR/MOST documents, Medication Worksheets and a Patient Passport document of essential healthcare information. The resource is portable, customizable and a goal is to have this as a resource in the electronic health record. The Patient Passport is in its final stages of completion.
Patient-Centered Medication Worksheet
Poor medication management is one of the most significant factors contributing to unnecessary hospital readmissions. The majority of medication errors occur during the time of transition from one care setting to the next. This worksheet was designed with input of patients, pharmacists, nurses and caregivers. It is meant to be kept up to date by the patient and/or caregiver, and to be taken with the patient for every care transition as part of the Patient Passport. It is in the final stages of completion.
