Krames StayWell, a health care communication and engagement company, announced its discharge instructions is available through the MEDITECH Electronic Health Record (EHR).
The Krames StayWell database of discharge instructions is designed to facilitate transitions between different care environments and ultimately, patients’ homes, to support better outcomes and avoid costly re-admissions. The discharge instructions library in MEDITECH is available in English and Spanish.
“Krames content is recognized for being patient-friendly and for helping providers educate patients at the point of care,” explained Robert True, manager of business development at MEDITECH. “Helping to provide superior patient care is at the core of MEDITECH’s mission. Creating easy access to Krames content enables us to meet that goal, and we are committed to making it happen.”
John George, senior vice president of sales at Krames StayWell, added, “Establishing this collaboration was important for us, because so many of our clients use the MEDITECH EHR. They want to reap its documentation and workflow benefits, without sacrificing the benefits driven by Krames–better communication between providers and patients for improved outcomes and satisfaction. Now, our clients can benefit from both.
“As we head into Stage 2 and Stage 3 of Meaningful Use, health care organizations must offer robust, EHR-based education and engagement solutions to their communities,” George continued. “Together, Krames StayWell and MEDITECH are laying the groundwork for today and tomorrow’s needs.
