Leveraging Your Cerner EHR to Increase Patient Handoff Reliability

Patient handoffs—transitioning patient information, authority and responsibility from one provider to another—occur throughout a patient’s care episode. In a typical teaching hospital, for example, there are approximately 4,000 patient handoffs every day. Although common, these transitions often leave room for potential errors that put patients at risk. The consequences can be significant. In fact, incomplete and insufficient transitions contribute to 80 percent of preventable adverse events.
