Automated Notifications Reduce Preventable Readmissions By Up To 18%

One third of primary care doctors are never notified that their patient was admitted, and studies indicate a ten-fold increased risk of hospital readmission for patients who are not seen by physicians within 30 days of discharge. Lack of care coordination leads to poor health outcomes.

The new Conditions of Participation (CoPs) applicable 5/1/21 require mandatory notification compliance for Medicare and Medicaid participating hospitals, including psychiatric hospitals and CAHs, to send electronic patient event notifications of patients’ admission, discharge, and/or transfer to their primary care provider.

In this solution session, Bevey Miner, Health IT Strategy CMO at J2 Cloud Services, shows how Consensus Signal routes ADT alerts, gaps in care, and care transition alerts directly to the EHR of the patient’s provider and care managers.
