La sortie de l'hôpital : le point de vue des médecins généralistes. Une enquête auprès des médecins généralistes libéraux exerçant sur le territoire meusien

Abstract : The coordination of care between hospital and general practitioners (GPs) is essential to achieve quality care for patients. The continued quality of care upon leaving the hospital depends significantly on good transmission of patient between the GPs and the hospital practitioners. For that transmission to be completed properly, a thoughtful discharge planning process must be implemented. The transmitted patient information must be of good quality including the relevant support information and provided to the GPs in due time. This study relies on a qualitative assessment approach to evaluate GPs view concerning the methods of patient hospital discharge handover. A simple questionnaire sent or mailed to 150 GPs from the Meusien area explored the way they perceived the quantity orquality of the information delivered to them by their hospital counterparts. 98 of the 150 GPs responded to the questionnaire (65,3%). Sixty percent of GPs interviewed started that the discharge process from hospitals to be partially or not satisfied. According to our study, in order to improve the coordination and continuity of care around the hospital discharge process, there are two essentials issues to consider. Firstly, the patient must be given the Hospital Discharge Form at the very time of discharge. Secondly, would be to improve the time taken to communicate the relevant information by using new types of information and communication technologies. The patient?s medical information seems to be the key link between the hospital and general practitioners, requiring a new method of communication between healthcare professionals to ensure improved efficiency of healthcare services.
