How Does ENS Work?
ENS receives messages from hospitals and compares them to patient lists provided by subscribers. When one of the listed patients receives care at a participating hospital or care facility, subscribers receive an alert containing details about the patient’s hospital encounter.
How and When Do I Receive Notifications?
ENS receives admit, discharge, transfer (ADT) messages from hospitals in near real-time and, if requested, can send notifications within moments of an encounter being recorded in the hospital’s own electronic medical record. Subscribers also have the option of receiving notifications once or twice daily in batch format. Notifications are delivered to subscribers via a number of secure methods: SFTP sites, Direct Messaging, and PROMPT.
Do I Need to Get My Patients’ Permission?
Yes, your organization will need authorization to access a patient’s health information before including that individual on your patient list for ENS. Patient authorization does not need to reference ENS specifically.
