ENS® Notifications Exceed 1 Million Each Month: Proven Usage for TCM Services

BALTIMORE, June 29, 2016 — Audacious Inquiry (Ai), a health information technology and policy company, announced that its clinical care coordination solution, Encounter Notification Service® (ENS®) has surpassed a market milestone in delivering over 1 million event-based notifications each month. ENS securely sends a patient’s inpatient and emergency department Admit-Discharge-Transfer (ADT) notifications to subscribing care team members, so they can coordinate timely, appropriate follow-up care. In addition, ENS can send a care summary (in C-CDA format) with the alert, so the care management team can smoothly transition patients from inpatient or emergency visits.

In the past four years, Ai has implemented ENS for health information exchange organization (HIO) subscribers across Florida, Utah, Delaware, and Maryland, as well as metro Philadelphia and the District of Columbia. Chris Brandt, Managing Partner at Ai, said, “We are proud of our partnerships with leading HIOs around the country. ENS has come through time and again as a standards-based care coordination tool.” He further commented, “ENS provides an important avenue to health organizations looking to rapidly scale up and leverage simple and broadly used health data transactions to help reduce unnecessary readmissions, improve clinical and quality outcomes, and support alternative payment models, such as ACOs, and population health initiatives.”

ENS has proven usage in supporting Meaningful Use requirements and Transitional Care Management (TCM) Services (CPT codes 99495 and 99496), as illustrated by a webinar and case studies published by CRISP (an ENS customer) and featured at http://ensinaction.com.
