Andor Health Delivers Guaranteed Compliance with New CMS Patient Access Regulations for Customers Using ThinkAndor™ Platform
ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Andor Health, the company that harnesses machine and human intelligence to change the way care teams connect and collaborate, announces that the ThinkAndor™ collaboration platform has already made customers successfully compliant with new patient access regulations. Customers using ThinkAndor are achieving compliance with the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Admission, Discharge, and Transfer (ADT) Event Notifications Conditions of Participation, as well as the recently enacted Florida Bill CS/HB-843, and are realizing meaningful results. Customers implement ThinkAndor in as little as four weeks, at which time they fully automate the connections with patients' primary care providers (PCPs) and guarantee full compliance to the regulations.
Currently, coordination between hospitals and specialists and primary care physicians is a manual and oftentimes labor-intensive process that is not sustainable in the face of the new regulations, even though over 45 percent of admitted patients ask for their PCPs to be consulted. The ADT Event notification Conditions of Participation requires healthcare organizations to electronically share data from major patient events, such as admission, discharge and transfer, with providers. Moreover, Florida CS/HB-843 also states hospitals must inform the patient about the right to request the hospital's treating physician to consult with the patient's PCP or specialist.
ThinkAndor from Andor Health guarantees full compliance with these laws quickly and easily by enabling providers to achieve the following:
"The new compliance regulations provide an opportunity to improve patient care dramatically by increasing coordination among providers, but they also represent a challenge to come into compliance quickly," said Raj Toleti, CEO of Andor Health. "Andor Health is proud to help organizations achieve full compliance while moving them away from manual workflows and towards an automated future."
Florida Health Providers See Immediate Success with Compliance
With Florida passing CS/HB-843 well ahead of the May 1, 2021 effective date of the ADT Conditions of Participation, hospitals in the state have a more urgent need to come into compliance. Lakeland Regional Health has already implemented ThinkAndor to automate the notification of PCPs. The result has been total success in keeping primary care providers informed, and consulted where needed, in every step of the patient journey, and increased patient and PCP satisfaction. Results include:
"As an essential healthcare provider for our community, it is important that Lakeland Regional Health continues to find efficient ways to enhance care and share patient information with primary care providers," said Ana M. Kalman, MBA, CHCIO, Lakeland Regional Health Vice President, Chief Information Officer/Chief Applications Officer and Medical Center Chief Operating Officer. "Given the success of Andor Health's platform, we elected to expand our community provider engagement and leverage the system to send additional information that providers have been requesting."
