Delayed Transfer of Care

Patients deteriorate physically and cognitively in direct proportion to their length of their hospital; and for elderly patients this has a significant impact on life-expectancy. This is why it is so important that patients stay in a hospital only as long as clinically appropriate.

The Medworxx Delayed Transfer of Care (DTOC) solution was developed using the Medworxx Forms & Assessments engine. The solution enables staff to easily electronically capture and report on DTOC information.  All of the Delayed Transfer of Care information is captured on one simple integrated electronic form and is then available through three reports.

  1. Progress Summary Report – Track number of pending and official DTOC patients per ward
  2. Official Delays –Summary of all inpatients with official DTOC’s attributed to the NHS, the Local Authority, or Both
  3. Progress List Report – Detailed report designed to track all DTOC’s and replace Excel

The DTOC solution is purposely designed to free up valuable staff time, allowing them to spend more of their day caring for patients. To learn more about Delayed Transfer of Care, click here to download the brochure.
