Gippsland to pilot project improving discharge summary quality

Victoria’s Gippsland Primary Health Network (PHN) is partnering with Latrobe Regional Hospital (LRH) to pilot a project looking at using the hospital’s EMR to improve the quality of discharge summaries sent to patients and GPs.

Gippsland PHN is funding the Gippsland Health Alliance to run the pilot with a focus group of general practitioners. The objective is to design a discharge summary format that is acceptable to GPs and fit for purpose as a tool for handing over a patient’s care from the hospital to their doctor, the PHN says.
