Hospital discharge planning has become increasingly important in an era of prospective payment and managed care. Given the changes in tasks, decisions, and environments involved, it is important to identify how to move such planning from an art to an empirically base decisionmaking process. The authors use a decision-sciences framework to review the state-of-the-art of hospital discharge planning and to suggest methods for improvement.
