The I-PASS standardized handoff protocol is considered the gold standard for inpatient handoffs, having been shown to reduce adverse events among hospitalized patients. In this study, implementation of I-PASS within an electronic medical record resulted in an improvement in handoff quality among pediatric residents. A recent PSNet interview discussed handoffs and the implementation and findings of the landmark I-PASS study.
