NEHII Selects Collective Medical to Support Multi-State ADT Alerting for Care Collaboration

Partnership ensures NEHII participant hospitals are fully compliant with the CMS ADT notifications Conditions of Participation

The Nebraska Health Information Initiative (NEHII), an outcomes-driven health information exchange with a public/private governance model that includes healthcare providers, payers and the State of Nebraska, today announced it has selected Collective Medical as its vendor to support broader ADT-based care coordination for hospitals, clinics, post-acute facilities and health plans in the Midwest.

Through this partnership, NEHII participants are fully compliant with the admissions, discharge and transfer (ADT) notifications Conditions of Participation (CoP) included as part of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Interoperability and Patient Access Rule. The new CoP, which takes effect May 1, 2021, requires all hospitals to send electronic notifications to a patient’s healthcare provider upon the patient’s admission, discharge or transfer. The notification may be sent to an intermediary, such as NEHII.

"We are committed to providing services and technology that demonstrate value to our participants in the Midwest," says Jaime Bland, CEO of NEHII.  "Our decision to partner with Collective is about more than ensuring hospitals are fully compliant with the CMS ADT notifications CoP. As part of the NEHII population health utility, Collective also provides our participants with the tools necessary to succeed in driving clinical and financial outcomes for their most vulnerable patients.”
