ADTs and Direct Secure Messaging
Event Notifications alert care teams about important patient events.
Information can be sent across departmental, organizational, or geographic
boundaries, and includes details such as an admission, discharge, or transfer
to/from a hospital, emergency department, or even Intensive Care Unit.
When care teams have timely knowledge about events, they can act on that
information to coordinate additional appropriate patient care.
The Event Notifications via the Direct Standard™ Implementation Guide was developed through an industry collaboration recognizing that more streamlined and better patient care can occur when there is a routine and understood way to alert care teams to these important events. EMR Direct is pleased to offer Event Notifications via the Direct Standard through phiMail™ Direct Messaging service.
How Does It Work?
EMR Direct's phiMail HISP service enables you to send or receive
notifications much like regular email, without having to set up a
custom interface between each sender and receiver, by using tech that's
already in place including a nationwide directory, and with the other
usual advantages of Direct Secure Messaging too.
