The health service provided by licensed professionals to the patients is desired to have an improved and concised way of communication. This type of communication is important for the people to have better way of care and treatment. The complex health system needs a safer way of treatment through concise and proper communication between the doctors and the patients.
The clinical handover should also be safe.
Both health professionals and patients suggest that their information needs are not met by the existing approach to transfer of care. There is evidence that the poor exchange and delayed distribution of information between health professionals depressingly affects continuity of care. This includes increased medication errors, higher readmission charges and delays in analysis, treatment and provision of test results.
