Welcome to 4Next
4Next is a web based application developed by Partners HealthCare System used to support the transition of patient care from the acute hospital to the post acute setting. Staff at the acute hospital can electronically assemble patient information and communicate with multiple post acute providers simultaneously and securely. This data includes pre-discharge and discharge information in a HIPAA compliant format. This clinical data is real time enabling the post acute provider to view information as it changes. 4Next provides a high quality, comprehensive discharge record that will improve the transition for the patient and the provider.
News and Events
Effective April 2nd, 2016, Mass General Hospital and Newton Wellesley Hospital will be using 4Next for all post acute referrals as they transition to Epic.
Please update your Provider Survey data via the Survey Tab as this assists the Hospital Case Manager in finding the most appropriate level of care for the patient's post acute needs. If you have questions or need assistance please use 'contact us'. Thank You.
Note from NWH
Dear SNF leaders,
Newton-Wellesley Hospital will be asking their nurses to carry out a warm handoff i.e. verbal exchange of information between the hospital nurse and the skilled nursing facility nurse for all SNFs as of November 2, 2015. Our nurses will call your main number and announce that they are calling to complete a handoff. We hope that this communication is efficient, brief and only includes key patient information. Our overarching goal is to contribute to a safer patient transition.
Your feedback is always welcome. 617-243-5956.
