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®.
