Comply with the CMS e-Notification Condition of Participation requirement by April 30, 2021
Countdown to Compliance:
One Contract, All Bases Covered
Whether you operate in a few or many states, and regardless of the number of hospitals per state, Audacious Inquiry will ensure 100% compliance with a single contract and SaaS-delivered service.
Operating in more than one state makes achieving full compliance with the CMS CoP rule an extra challenge for IDNs when you are not able to handle the last mile delivery of the notifications.
As a national leader in healthcare information interoperability, we provide one contract nationwide:
- In states where your system is a member of an HIE, we can deliver directly to and in collaboration with the HIE.
- In states where there is no compliant HIE, or your IDN is not a member, our CoP solution will handle compliant notification delivery all the way to the providers.
Audacious Inquiry 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.
