Transcript

There are many people with chronic conditions who require repeated visits to the hospital, or perhaps they had a particular surgery at a specific hospital.

That can often help speed their care and their visit in the ER, and make it easier for them to follow up after their ER visit. That is also true for many types of surgeries.

Common questions include asking, what medication is being given? What is the medication treating? And, what tests are being done?
