The Johns Hopkins Hospital has developed AUTRES, an electronic discharge summary. This computer generated report was designed to provide improved continuity in the care of patients by offering a legible, standardized summary of the events of hospitalization. It can be sent by mail, FAX, or electronically (computer-to-computer) to the next care giver who will see the patient. It is available from any network attached terminal at the hospital and School of Medicine to support re-admission to the hospital, treatment in the emergency room, or outpatient visits. AUTRES first ran in fully supported production serving the Department of Medicine in 1988. Re-engineered to take advantage of cooperative processing, it has been implemented in Neurology, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology and Pediatrics, with plans for phased installation in the remaining clinical departments of The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
