CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Rule
and 21st Century Cures Act

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has published final rules on several facets of the 21st Century Cures Act that have broad ramifications on the healthcare technology industry. Taken together, these efforts are aimed at facilitating interoperability to improve care coordination and transitions of care.


 

The first, the Interoperability and Patient Access (CMS-9115-F), requires hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, and critical access hospitals with electronic health records to send electronic notifications to the patient’s care team when patients are admitted, discharged, or transferred (ADT) to healthcare facilities or providers. Specifically, hospitals must send notifications to:

  • a patient’s the patient’s established primary care practitioner, practice group, or entity—or other practitioners, practice groups, or entities identified by the patient as the entity primarily responsible for their care
  • any post-acute care service provider/agency or other outpatient service provider(s) responsible for the patient’s follow-up or ancillary care—specifically defined as post-acute services providers and suppliers with whom the patient has an established care relationship prior to admission or to whom the patient is being transferred or referred

Hospitals must have a solution implemented by September 2020.

 

The second, the Interoperability, Information Blocking, and the ONC Health IT Certification Program (45 CFR Parts 170 and 171), regulates the blocking of electronic health information (EHI) and grants HHS enforcement abilities.

Hospitals using Collective Medical for notifications will fully meet the CMS conditions of participation requirements

Collective offers a lightweight, cost-effective solution that ensures hospitals, psychiatric hospitals, and critical access hospitals are completely compliant—without the need for any additional intermediary service providers.

Proven outcomes using the nation’s most effective Admission, Discharge, and Transfer (ADT) network

Collective combines data from sources spanning the care continuum—ADT, continuity of care documents (CCD), claims data, prescription drug histories (PDMP/PMP), imaging, and more—to give deep insights into patients’ activities. This data has helped clients:

The Collective Platform surfaces risk and enables the appropriate stakeholder to take action, driving consistent, informed care

Focus

Real-time analytics identify vulnerable patients in need of attention as they have encounters at facilities across the network

Engage

Intelligent notifications with curated, actionable content are pushed to the right care team members within their existing workflows

Collaborate

A shared environment that engages both upstream and downstream providers to create and act on collaborative plans of care

Become fully compliant with the new CMS Interoperability and Patient Access conditions of participation
