Get connected to a notification system for SNF admits, discharges
August 20, 2018

This article is intended for skilled nursing facility administrators.

Starting immediately, you have an opportunity to connect at no cost to an online system that can help with coordination of care at your skilled nursing facility.

We’re now working with Collective Medical, an independent company that brings real-time admission, discharge, and transfer information to skilled nursing and other health care facilities, doctors, and health plans nationwide.

Sharing this type of patient data using an integrated system can help improve communication, care coordination, care transitions, and overall patient care. The system can also help reduce readmissions by giving you clinical visit history information to help with medical decision-making.

Representatives from Collective will contact you soon to provide more details, answer your questions, and to help you connect to this online system. Set-up won’t cost you anything and includes implementation, training, and licensing. Participation is voluntary. We hope you’ll consider this opportunity to participate with Collective.

How does the admission discharge transfer notification system work?
Collective’s PreManage®' tool can track patient admissions, discharges, and transfers—all in one system. Most Massachusetts acute care hospitals are already connected, so you can exchange information with your referring hospitals quickly and easily. Thousands of acute care hospitals, rehabilitation facilities, primary care practices, and skilled nursing facilities nationwide are also participating, giving you secure access to patient data with a few clicks.

Why is Blue Cross working with Collective?
We believe this communication exchange can benefit you and your patients. With endorsement from the Massachusetts Health & Hospital Association, Collective has been working with Massachusetts acute care hospitals since the beginning of this year and is now enrolling skilled nursing facilities. We’re also participating.

Once you start using the admission discharge transfer notification system, all members of the patient’s care team who are enrolled with the system can coordinate and share information (in compliance with HIPAA privacy rules). This includes Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts clinical teams who support our members with case management and other programs.
