As a certified ENS vendor, PatientPing meets specific functional, data security, data sharing, and business criteria focused on ensuring statewide ENS access, delivery, reliability, and integrity.
FREMONT, CA: PatientPing, the nation's most comprehensive care collaboration platform, announced that it has been granted full certification status under the state of Massachusetts' Mass HIway Event Notification Service (ENS) initiative. This enables Massachusetts community providers to receive real-time notifications when patients experience care events, whether they are at a hospital, emergency department, or post-acute care facility, increasing access to the information that improves care coordination for patients, which ultimately improves patient outcomes.
The Massachusetts statewide ENS Framework was developed by the Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) and the Mass HIway to enable care providers to receive alerts about their patients' admissions, discharges, and transfers (ADTs) by requiring acute care hospitals across Massachusetts to send ADTs to a certified ENS vendor. Since 2014 PatientPing has been building an extensive ADT network in the state of Massachusetts and beyond. The PatientPing network spans the care continuum and includes 10 MassHealth ACOs and 12 of the state's Medicare ACOs. Additionally, PatientPing is connected to nearly 90 percent of acute beds in New England with close to 1,000 post-acute partners, 610 skilled nursing facilities, 340 home health and hospices, and a rapidly growing number of community providers.
"This is an important initiative for our state. Enabling all entities that have a shared treatment relationship with a patient to be notified about who else is caring for them and why, via real-time ADT information, helps develop the most impactful care plans, which ultimately improves patient health," said Jay Desai, CEO & co-founder of PatientPing. "My co-founder and I started PatientPing in Massachusetts, and the care coordination network we've built only becomes stronger with the MassHIway initiative. I'm excited to partner with the state as a certified ENS vendor because it accelerates our mission of connecting providers to seamlessly coordinate patient care."
