Discharge Note Writer

Speed up hospital discharge note writing, reduce doctors' workload, and minimize patient risks.


Medical professionals are overwhelmed by the arduous task of preparing discharge documentation, with an average of 13.4 minutes spent on this process within a typical 20-minute consultation (1). This extensive time requirement to document patient discharges not only detracts from direct patient interaction, but also contributes to unnecessarily prolonged hospital stays and delayed care transitions. The domino effect is twofold: healthcare providers' productivity is stifled and patients are exposed to increased risk of hospital-acquired infections due to their prolonged time in care. Therefore, streamlining the discharge procedure is critical to improving efficiency, freeing up valuable time for healthcare providers, and ensuring patient safety by reducing the risk of exposure to potential infections within the hospital environment (2).

Why it matters

  • Preparing discharge documentation takes 13.4 minutes of a 20-minute consultation, reducing time for patient care.
  • This inefficiency leads to longer hospital stays, delayed care transitions, and increased risk of hospital-acquired infections.
  • Streamlining discharge procedures improves efficiency, provider productivity, and patient safety by reducing infection risks.

MediNote AI functionality is supported by a synthesis of rigorous academic research and practical EHR data. The critical components for producing high-quality summaries have been identified through studies such as those conducted by Myers et al. (1), together with the comparative analysis carried out by Yemm et al. (2). Additionally, PubMed, a recognized biomedical research database, has been used as a key source for accessing reliable, evidence-based medical literature, which further informs and enhances the system's ability to generate accurate and actionable patient discharge notes.
