Decedent Management: A Better Approach for the Office of Decedent Affairs

Hospitals must comply with facility, city, state, and federal requirements, and they must avoid errors related to the handling of deceased patients. Such errors create emotional distress to patients’ family members and can be embarrassing and costly for hospitals. Syft enables hospitals to automatically track, accurately document, and easily monitor the flow of deceased patients internally and to external entities.
