Discharge Summary v1.5.1

Discharge Summary documents support the transfer of a patient from a hospital back to the care of their nominated primary healthcare provider.

They capture details about the patient's hospital stay, including the diagnosis, diagnostic procedures performed, the prognosis, medications prescribed and follow-up actions recommended.

The My Health Record system supports the collection of Discharge Summary documents. When a healthcare provider creates a Discharge Summary document, it will be sent directly to the nominated primary healthcare provider, as per current practices. A copy may also be sent to the individual’s digital health record.

NOTE: This document type was previously referred to as “eDischarge Summary”. The current name reflects the naming in the My Health Record system.
