Partnership will enable MyHealth to enhance coordinated care for people across the state
TULSA and BALTIMORE – October 19th, 2021 – Today, MyHealth Access Network (MyHealth), Oklahoma’s non-profit Health Information Exchange helping doctors deliver safer and more efficient healthcare through the secure sharing of medical records, announced a partnership with Audacious Inquiry to facilitate better healthcare for Oklahomans.
The partnership will ensure MyHealth member hospitals have the capabilities in place to be able to elect and satisfy the new CMS Condition of Participation (CoP) e-Notification requirement. This requirement mandates all Medicare and Medicaid hospitals with certified electronic health record systems send electronic notifications to a patient’s primary care provider and care team members, including community and post-acute providers, when patients are admitted, transferred, or discharged.
“Modern healthcare is difficult for patients to navigate and for doctors to coordinate. By adding new care coordination and alerting capabilities, we are taking an important step to ensure Oklahomans receive the best possible healthcare,” said Dr. David Kendrick, MyHealth’s CEO. “This partnership with Audacious Inquiry will enable providers across the state to better serve their patients.”
“Audacious Inquiry is solving basic, critical challenges of making the healthcare system more connected,” said Scott Afzal, President of Audacious Inquiry. “Providers need timely insights to be proactive throughout patients’ healthcare journeys, and we are proud to work closely with MyHealth to improve care coordination in Oklahoma.”
For more information about the CoP e-Notification requirements, Audacious Inquiry published a comprehensive eBook “New CMS Conditions of Participation: What Hospitals Need to Know” available to download here.
