The CMS conditions of participation for hospitals - including psychiatric hospitals and critical access hospitals (CAH) - require a means to notify downstream providers of admissions and discharges. SYNCRONYS has partnered with Collective Medical to add a new program to its platform to full ensure its client partners meet and exceed both the letter and the spirit of these new requirements.

how it works

The New Mexico Solution integrates with the hospital EHR to automatically deliver required event notifications to identified primary care and post-acute providers—without the need to change existing workflows.

  1. A patient arrives at a hospital that utilizes Collective Medical’s event notification service. The hospital follows its standard registration processes, and an ADT message containing the patient’s demographic information, primary care provider, post-acute relationship(s), and encounter specifics is delivered to Collective.

  2. Collective normalizes the incoming ADT message and merges the data with an existing patient profile if one exists. Collective’s intelligent analytics review the encounter information to see if any entities on the network who are utilizing Collective’s other programs— Emergency Department Optimization, Substance Use Disorder Support, Behavioral Health Coordination, Patient Safety and Workplace Violence Prevention, Readmissions Reduction, or Bundled Payment Coordination—are positioned to influence outcomes for the patient.

    The message is analyzed to determine whether a do not notify or patient opt-out flag has been added by the hospital. If so, notifications are not sent to downstream providers, and the encounter along with the reason a notification was not delivered is logged in the platform for future audit reporting.

  1. The information provided in the ADT message is utilized to identify the patients’ preferred primary care (or other relevant) provider and the patient’s post-acute care providers in either NPPES or within Collective’s own provider directory service and attempts to deliver the notification according to each entity’s previously selected preferred delivery method.

    If the recipient has not previously selected a preferred delivery method, the notification will be held in a queue for one week or until a preferred delivery method is chosen. If one is not selected within the holding period, the notification will be delivered according to the hospital’s indicated delivery method.

  2. Notifications are delivered to recipients according to their preferred delivery methods. The notifications sent are logged, and read receipts are tracked for future reporting.

    Audit logs are created for program participants at regular intervals, formatted according to CMS requirements.
