Event Notifications via the Direct Standard®
Care teams should be informed when a mutual patient experiences an event, like a hospital admission, discharge, or transfer (ADT). In response to the CMS requirement that hospitals electronically send ADT notifications by May 1, 2021, a Consensus Body formed to identify a solution using Direct Secure Messaging for both senders and receivers of these notifications. Forty organizations and individuals representing the care continuum collaborated on an Implementation Guide for Event Notifications via the Direct Standard®.
As the Implementation Guide is being adopted and tested, the Consensus Body is working through additional updates to the document. Because of the time-sensitive nature of implementing Event Notifications, both the version approved by DirectTrust Standards Board for publication, as well as the redline in progress version, not yet presented to the DirectTrust Standards Board, are linked below, as well as the opportunity to provide feedback by selecting “Standards” in the linked Contact form.
