Discharge Ready Date

Discharge Ready Date is an ACTIVITY DATE TIME.

Discharge Ready Date is the date that a PATIENT no longer met the 'Criteria to Reside' in a Hospital Bed.  Note that Discharge Ready Date is not the same as the Estimated Discharge Date (Hospital Provider Spell) and is recorded separately.

The status of a PATIENT within a Hospital Provider Spell who is awaiting discharge may change from no longer meeting the 'Criteria to Reside' in a Hospital Bed, to once again meeting the 'Criteria to Reside' in a Hospital Bed, if the clinical condition of the PATIENT deteriorates while awaiting discharge for any reason. 

The 'Criteria to Reside' are set out in Annex D of the 'Hospital discharge and community support guidance' document part of the gov.uk website at: Criteria to Reside.

Usage in the Commissioning Data Sets version 6-2 and Commissioning Data Sets version 6-3:

For Finished Care Professional Admitted Care Episodes, the Discharge Ready Date should record the final time that the PATIENT no longer met the 'Criteria to Reside' in a Hospital Bed, if applicable.

For Unfinished Care Professional Admitted Care Episodes, the Discharge Ready Date should show the latest date that the PATIENT no longer met the 'Criteria to Reside', if applicable.
