Abstract

The Johns Hopkins Hospital is developing a system which automates the production of a patient discharge summary. The discharge summary is necessary to support continuing care after discharge, to allow assessment of changes in the patient's status, to be a certifiable document which supports ICD-9CM coding and DRG assignment, and which serves as a basis for a report to various health agencies of incidence of reportable disease. Automating this process results in reduced overhead, increased data quality and accuracy, faster report generation and a shorter in-patient billing cycle.
