PatientPing Partners with MedAllies to Ensure Hospital Partners’ Compliance with CMS
E-Notifications Condition of Participation
MedAllies’ National Provider Directory to Expand PatientPing’s E-Notification Footprint and Improve Care Coordination and Patient Care Transitions Across the Country
Boston, MA— (November 10, 2020)— PatientPing, the nation’s leading care collaboration platform, and MedAllies, a leading provider of Health Information Service Provider (HISP) solutions, today announced a strategic partnership, which will allow PatientPing to connect to the MedAllies National Provider Directory and send secure Direct Message notifications of patient care transitions to providers in all 50 states. By leveraging synergies between PatientPing and MedAllies’ solutions, hospital partners can increase care coordination and improve patient outcomes, while ensuring compliance with the electronic patient event notifications (e-notifications) Condition of Participation (CoP) published as part of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Interoperability and Patient Access final rule.
With the addition of a Direct Messaging capability to its network, PatientPing now has the country’s most extensive e-notification footprint across the care continuum. PatientPing is powered by the nation’s largest network of admission, discharge, and transfer (ADT) data, encompassing more than 1,000 hospitals and 5,000 post-acute facilities. As part of the new partnership agreement, hospital partners that do not already have a Direct Messaging service in place for other initiatives could alternatively use the MedAllies Direct Solutions and leverage the company’s National Provider Directory.
“In today’s health care environment, delivery of quality care requires access to pertinent clinical information at the point of care, so we are excited to partner with PatientPing, to improve access to critical patient data,” said Dr. John Blair, CEO of MedAllies. “Our National Provider Directory coupled with PatientPing’s network of real-time ADT data can address real-world health care gaps to ensure that the right information is securely delivered to the right provider at the right time to improve care transitions for patients that need it most.”
“This partnership allows PatientPing to leverage MedAllies’ National Provider Directory to expand our solutions and further support our hospital partners to easily comply with the CMS e-notifications CoP requirements,” said Jitin Asnaani, head of partnerships at PatientPing. “By adding MedAllies’ Direct Messaging functionality to our robust national network of hospitals and post-acute facilities, we can now provide more care transition notifications to providers across the country. This not only helps providers better collaborate with one another, but improve outcomes for the patients they serve.”
