Contact MHC for information on ADT Compliance
ONC Information Blocking Rule requirements and CMS Interoperability & Patient Access Rule Conditions of Participation (CoP) related to the ADT Notification requirements
MHC’s current infrastructure and design inherently meets a hospital’s obligation under this regulation that goes into effect on 5/4/2021. MHC and its hospitals have invested considerable time, effort, and resources to design workflows that carefully consider the compliance rules, alert fatigue, process, and end user workflows. MHC understands that this work effort is not something that can be implemented or put into place expeditiously and thoughtfully.
On August 17, 2020 the Lewis & Clark Information Exchange, Midwest Health Connection & the Tiger Institute health information exchange networks co-hosted a webinar to review the ONC Information Blocking Rule requirements and the CMS Interoperability & Patient Access Rule Conditions of Participation (CoP) related to the ADT Notification requirements.
Specifically the webinar was a collaborative effort to ensure that all of the hospitals in Missouri and the Midwest are informed, prepared and equipped with the knowledge and direction on what the Cures Act requirements are for hospitals and health systems and offering a free webinar for hospitals to explain what they need to know about the new information blocking rule and CMS Conditions of Participation (CoP) requirements for sending admission, discharge and transfer (ADT) alerts. The compliance deadlines are April 5, 2021 for the information blocking rule and May 1, 2021 for the new CoPs.

eNotifications Webinar: Complying with the CMS Conditions of Participation
On March 19th, 2021 Midwest Health Connection (MHC) co-hosted a webinar with Velatura HIE Corp. to review the CMS Conditions of Participation (CoP) related to the ADT Messaging requirements. Starting May 1, 2021, CMS will require all Medicare or Medicaid- participating hospitals to send eNotifications for admissions, discharges, or transfers (ADTs).
The webinar discussed what these CoPs will mean for your organization and how to prepare for compliance. The hospital community will benefit from a discussion on each of the requirements, how participation in Midwest Health Connection's (MHC) network will support compliance, and what steps your organization should take to prepare for CoP surveyor audits. For providers, opportunities for care coordination and how Post-Acute Care Providers (PACs) and Primary Care Providers (PCPs) can begin to receive eNotifications if they are not doing so already.
