From January through March 2015, eight hospital departments across Toronto came together to implement Patient-Oriented Discharge Summaries (PODS), a tool developed through a codesign process involving patients, caregivers and providers. This presentation
presents data on how the hospitals came together and the impact of PODs. Two early adopter hospitals (St. Michael’s Hospital / Hospital for Sick Children) will present their experience as well as the impact of implementing PODs within their environments.
