discharge report summarizing a mandated period of care


This is a concrete item and can be implemented directly

Term: discharge summary; 
Plural: discharge summaries; 


NOTE 1 A discharge summary may be provided to the subject of care.

NOTE 2 One mandated period of care may be immediately followed by another; the next mandated healthcare provider will then be a main recipient of the discharge summary.

NOTE 3 discharge summaries are often meant to be processed so as to categorize hospital stays according to a statistically designed classification (such as the Diagnosis-Related Groups (DRGs) or other systems), usually for funding or epidemiological purposes.
