This article presents the redesign of an adult inpatient falls program using a computerized information system. Named the ADAPT Fall Tool, the tool provides an accurate assessment of the fall risk of each patient. Indicators are embedded into routine assessment documentation, eliminating added charting time. The program allows tailored interventions for specific patient risks, and the fall risk information is integrated into the care plan, report sheets, and care conferences, producing an interdisciplinary communication network.
