Outpatient is an app that has 27 of the most common issues we see in one of the busiest emergency departments in Canada.
Patients are already overwhelmed and exhausted when leaving the hospital. Trying to remember a complicated set of discharge instructions can add to the stress. This app will help you keep track of all the things you might not catch.
Set reminders and alerts post-discharge, like scheduling follow-up appointments, changing bandages, taking medication and more. This is all information that has been vetted by medical professionals. There's also room to add your own personalized notes.
And it's not just for Emergency Department situations. You can use the information and tips even before coming to the hospital. Take control of your health, avoid being a repeat customer in the Emergency Department, and go from discharge to in charge!
