Getting Ready for the CMS ADT Deadline

Creating a great product for hospitals starts with understanding their challenges; and CMS has recently introduced a new hurdle.  

ADT (admission, discharge, transfer) notifications are critical to improving care delivery and supporting coordination across the healthcare continuum. After publishing the Interoperability and Patient Access final rule in 2020, CMS has set a deadline of May 1, 2021 for healthcare organizations to comply with notification of ADT events. 

This rule will apply to all hospitals that have an EHR or administrative system that conforms with the HL7 2.5.1 content exchange standard, including behavioral health and critical access providers. For companies that want to address ADT compliance, now is the time to examine how their solutions will support hospitals in this time of transition. 

What’s the best way to start? It is most important to center hospital needs as you develop ADT functionality in your products. Starting there will make sure that your offerings align with the hospitals’ compliance and care goals, but also make your go-to-market much easier. 

To help you get there, we identified 5 steps to get products hospital-ready for the CMS ADT deadline. Be sure to check out our white paper for more information.

A new slew of CMS regulation mandates are coming to bring healthcare to the future.

Using APIs to their fullest potential has the power to give patients the most out of their providers, while all parties avoid redundancy, excessive costs, and 20th century hindrances such as document-sharing and poorly-maintained directories. 

These mandates will be bringing a lot of change, and it’ll be crucial to have an expert in your corner when the time comes.
