Using Technology to Increase Patient Handoff Reliability

Patient handoffs occur hundreds of times throughout a patient’s care episode, and they can be risky. For example, incomplete and insufficient transitions contribute to 80 percent of preventable adverse events. Poor handoffs also lead to readmissions, Medicare penalties, negative outcomes and even give rise to litigation.
