Countdown to Compliance:
Who does this affect?
Medicare and Medicaid participating hospitals, including psychiatric hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals.
What is the requirement?
Admit, Discharge, and Transfer (ADT) notifications for treatment, care coordination, or quality improvement purposes must be sent following Inpatient, Emergency Department, and Observation visits to ensure a ‘reasonable effort’ was made to send electronic notifications to providers, SNFs, and other suppliers at either the provider’s or patient’s request.
How do I meet compliance?
Audacious Inquiry’s cloud-based, SaaS platform provides a CoP solution that leverages ADT data and enables the transfer of electronic notifications at the point of care. CMS CoP compliance is assured through workflows and processes supporting the ability to share medical records when requested. Additionally, the solution provides reports specifying critical metrics for compliance both in reaching initial compliance and for maintaining compliance. With over a decade of proven practice in health information technology and policy expertise combined with our industry-leading real-time encounter notifications technology, this team of interoperability experts will take the burden off your IT staff to meet compliance. Let’s talk!
Ai is the leading encounter notification provider in the country; delivering over 30 million notifications per month to subscribers from over 20 percent of connected hospital beds across the country. Our many years of experience as data quality experts have taught us how to connect to any ADT data source. We have the flexibility to deliver notifications in a multitude of ways to providers and accountable care organizations to maximize workflow impact. Hospitals rely and trust in our technology and experience every day to deliver compliant notifications all over the country.

CMS’ CoP compliance is just one of the many capabilities we support.
Our platform also helps organizations:
Ensure the seamless flow of health data
Support value-based care
Enable smooth transitions of care
Hospitals leverage our connected care platform to assist with discharge planning and care teams benefit from enhanced care coordination management.
Receive comprehensive data that’s actionable
Capture Transitional Care Management (TCM) revenue
Optimizes financial performance by enhancing the TCM capture rate through real-time discharge notifications, allowing timely follow-up and reduced readmissions.
Reduce patient leakage
When patients seek care outside of their hospital network, it makes it difficult for providers to track and support patient outcomes. By proactively identifying patient leakage, this provides an opportunity to intervene and provide care within network.
