eRecord and Discharge Summary Reports
Below is an overview of the reports most community providers are receiving when their patients are discharged from Strong and Highland hospitals.
When a patient is discharged from either Strong or Highland hospitals, you receive three faxed reports.
- The After Visit Summary (AVS): This is a document intended for the patient, and summarizes their inpatient stay and follow-up medical care. IMPORTANT: The AVS is the only URMC report that contains an official record of the patient’s medication list.
- Preliminary Discharge Summary (D/C Summary): This is a preliminary discharge summary prepared by the resident. While many residents and providers will include a list of patient medications in their D/C summary, it is not guaranteed, so you’ll need to refer to the patient’s AVS for the most recent medication list.
- Final Discharge Summary: Once the attending physician reviews and approves/updates the Discharge Summary, a final copy is faxed to the PCP on record.
Emergency Department Reports
For patients being discharged from either the Strong or Highland Emergency Department, a report is faxed to the PCP of record. This report includes chief complaint, final diagnosis, disposition, meds ordered while in the ED, prescriptions provided, and discharge instructions.
