Patients receiving a Plan of Care show significant improvement in clinical outcomes compared with those without Care Plans.
Developing a Plan of Care will help to facilitate the physician-patient discussion for setting health goals to determine the effectiveness in improving clinical outcomes. Benefits include:
- Patients engaged in decisions about their care.
- Reduced errors and delays while clinical staff attempt to contact family members.
- Integration with key hospital systems so medical staff are automatically notified that an ACP is available and can be accessed quickly.
- Elimination of slow and cumbersome paper-based records.
