The Volunteer Auxiliary of Emory-Adventist Hospital at Smyrna which works hand and hand with The Foundation of Emory-Adventist Hospital presented three Microsoft Surface tablet computers to hospital departments at Emory-Adventist Hospital.
“The tablets will be an extremely useful tool for the Transition Care Coordinators in educating patients during their hospital stay at EAH, post-discharge and coordinating physician follow-up care,” said Camille LoCoco, director of Case Management at EAH. “This education is extremely important in helping prevent hospital readmissions by providing patients with knowledge and resources to improve their health.”
