Azalea Health Selects PatientPing to Support Hospitals in Compliance with New CMS Electronic Event Notification Condition of Participation
Azalea Health Innovations, a leading provider of cloud-based patient management and health IT solutions, today announced a partnership with PatientPing, the nation’s leading care coordination data and software solution, to connect PatientPing’s national network of healthcare providers with Azalea Health’s Electronic Health Records (EHR) platform, AzaleaONE™. The integration will be included in an automatic update to AzaleaONE, improving care coordination efforts and supporting hospitals in meeting compliance with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)’s electronic event notification (e-notification) Condition of Participation (CoP).
In May 2020, CMS published the Interoperability and Patient Access final rule, which added a new CoP that requires hospitals to alert primary care providers (PCPs) and post-acute care providers (PACs) when patients are admitted, discharged, or transferred from the emergency department (ED) or inpatient services. The deadline for hospitals to comply with the new CoP is May 1st, 2021.
