Patients Leaving Against Medical Advice (AMA)

Horizon Health can help you reduce risks of patients leaving Against Medical Advice (AMA).
Knowing whether a patient is at risk of leaving against medical advice (AMA) can help guide care. Patients who choose to leave AMA during their hospital stay are more often admitted with a primary diagnosis of substance abuse, more likely male and tend to be less satisfied with the care they received. Encouraging and assisting a patient to complete their treatment is important in long-term outcomes and preventing possible re-hospitalizations. 

Our colleagues at Mental Health Outcomes have created an infographic to help illustrate the challenges facing patients leaving AMA.
