RADR is a standardized approach to identifying patients that are medically ready to be discharged or transferred from acute care and the barriers that need to be removed. Standardization is critically important to maintaining consistency in decision making and will maximize the number of beds that can be freed up while also safeguarding patient health.
RADR identifies large numbers of patients that can be discharged and identifies barriers to the discharge planning process.
RADR supports planning for and response to a surge in demand by creating increased capacity through the rapid identification of patients that can be discharged or decanted
A standardized approach is critically important for consistent decision making and will maximize the freeing up of capacity while also safeguarding patient health.
- RADR asks nursing professionals a series of questions that can be answered with a YES or NO
- The questions involve the clinical presentation as well as the treatment plan. They do not question the diagnosis or plan of care for the patient.
Determines Discharge Readiness:
- Does the patient require hospitalization?
- Why are they not home?
- What does the patient need next?
- If the Patient cannot go home today, when do we anticipate they might be safe to do so?
If there are reasons why an alternative setting for care is not possible, the blockages preventing discharge or transfer are collected. Generally, blockages can be quickly overcome, and the discharge can safely proceed.
RADR is hosted by VitalHub and accessible through any internet-enabled device (desktops, tablets, smartphones, etc.) and absolutely no patient identifying information is requested or stored.
