I-PASS, a care transition handoff tool that enhances communication when coordinating patient transfer of care during medical shift changes, has been found to reduce preventable errors associated with handoffs. New pilot study found user-generated patient information and automatically compiled EHR data in the I-PASS format can reduce documentation errors.
