A before-and-after comparison was carried out as part of an accompanying evaluation. The two phases extended from December 2nd, 2019 - March 1st, 2020 (investigation period before introduction) and from March 2nd to June 2nd, 2020. (investigation period after introduction). In the first investigation period before the introduction, only the process time from the start of the search, starting with the first telephone call, to the confirmation of a subsequent supplier was considered. The analog way of working made it difficult and very time-consuming to document and evaluate further key figures. For this reason, key figures such as the total number of broadcasts and the intervals between interactions were evaluated in the investigation period after the introduction. The time between sending the broadcast and a first reaction (acceptance or rejection), an acceptance or an order for the patient transfer of the respective follow-up care provider was measured. In the inpatient area, the Alfried Krupp Hospital received initial feedback from the institutions providing aftercare after an average of 20 minutes. This shows that the social service is informed of a current status after a short time. The first promise for the care of the requested patient takes place after 10.5 hours. Taking into account the comparative value from before the platform was introduced, there is a potential savings of 90%. In the outpatient area, the Alfried Krupp Hospital received the first reactions on average after 6 minutes and the first promise of a follow-up care provider after 15 minutes. The first promise Taking into account the comparative value from before the platform was introduced, this results in a savings potential of 99.5%. The results show that with a corresponding search, a suitable follow-up supplier can be expected on the same day. In addition, the discharge and transfer platform also has a positive influence on the organizational structures of the hospital. In this way, the employees of the Alfried Krupp Hospital were able to seamlessly continue and understand the search for a suitable follow-up supplier during the second examination phase, even in cases of substitution or when changing ward. Above all, the interface to the hospital information system enables a seamless and transparent display of the current status.
