Time is Almost Up! Are You ADT Notification Compliant?

Time Almost Up ADT Notification Compliant EHR

The deadline for demonstrating the ability to share event-based admission, discharge, and transfer (ADT) patient data with other providers is almost here.

On May 1 the ADT Notification requirement goes into effect, a new part of the CMS Conditions of Participation (CoP) for Interoperability and Patient Access rule. As a quick overview, the requirement states that “hospitals with the technical capabilities to do so must use ‘reasonable efforts’ to send real-time alerts” concerning patient statuses to outside facilities—specifically post-acute care facilities/providers (PACs) and primary care providers (PCPs).

To help you ensure compliance with the ADT Notifications requirements, MEDHOST has added a solution to our platform.

MEDHOST Care Notifications

Care Notifications is a MEDHOST service designed to help our hospitals improve their communication with community providers and post-acute settings of care through automated notifications. Care Notifications also help hospitals meet CMS Conditions of Participation requirements for ADT Event Notifications.

Using a highly secure, Direct Messaging standard—a widely adopted and commonly used method for communicating care coordination and transitions of care—the service provides:

  • A system to facilitate real-time automated notifications to patient’s primary care physicians upon ED registration (including observation), inpatient admission, and discharge, or transfer.
  • The ability for Post-Acute facilities to subscribe, manage, and receive notifications on their patients when seen in your hospital.

To help ensure a seamless implementation, the Care Notifications service has been designed to build onto existing hospital practices. This also helps minimize the effort and resources spent by our customers. Plus, by basing communication on the Direct Messaging standards, hospitals can rest assured that their valuable patient health information remains confidential and secure.

This is a quick and secure solution for real-time ADT data sharing that streamlines the process so you can continue to deliver top quality healthcare and meet CoP compliance.
