ADT Event Notification Now Includes Specialty Providers

For Hospital Scheduling, Front Desk and Registration Staff
Starts Today

Starting today, patients’ hospital admit, discharge and transfer (ADT) event notifications will be sent to primary care and specialty providers, aligning with the new Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) ADT event notifications requirement.

To ensure the patient’s care team accurately receives notification of a hospital admit, discharge or transfer:

  • During patient registration, the patient’s primary care provider and any specialty provider information must be entered, active and verified.

  • You must also complete the Notify Care Team? field within Registration (previously called Notify PCP on Adm?). Note: This doesn’t apply to HM SPG/PCG staff.

  • For more information, review the tip sheet.
