eStar Changes and Updates

Clarification: New Speed Buttons in Patient List View

The new speed buttons available in the Patient List view will not be available for nursing staff until the spring update to eStar, currently planned for late March.

Update to Discharge Huddle Process

Beginning January 20, the Medical Readiness section of the Progress and Discharge navigators will now feature “Reasons for change in expected discharge date.” This information will better expedite discharges and help manage inpatient volumes.

The change will impact users of discharge planning tools. It will be completed when a change is needed for an original discharge, expected discharge date. Users will need to document the reason for the change. The transitions management team will use this data to help better support efficient patient flow.
