How to Use Your MyMSK Goals to Discharge Checklist

When your surgery is over, you’ll focus on getting well enough to leave the hospital. To help you track how you’re doing, we will send a Goals to Discharge Checklist to your MyMSK account. You can use this electronic checklist to see the goals you need to meet before leaving the hospital and update your progress throughout the day. Your updates also send alerts to your surgical team about your progress.
