Touchette Regional Hospital has partnered with PatientPing to provide real-time e-notifications upon patient admit, discharge, and transfer events to community provider recipients in accordance with the new CMS requirements. Community providers will be able to access event notifications from Touchette Regional Hospital in two different ways:
Notifications will be sent to PCPs and other providers identified by the patient and recorded in their patient record during a hospital encounter via Direct Messages, a national encryption standard for secure clinical data exchange. Providers will have the option to unsubscribe from receiving Direct Messages via a link in the e-notification if they wish.
Primary care entities, PACs, and other providers can also proactively request and receive notifications on their attributed patients at no cost by submitting a patient roster either directly or through a PAC EHR integration. Providers will be able to select from flexible notification delivery options to suit their workflows including web application, SMS/email push alerts, and data downloads.
