The Massachusetts Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS), Mass HIway is gathering information and input for a planned offering of an Event Notification Service (ENS).
ENS can provide real-time notifications to the patient’s healthcare providers regarding their admissions to, discharges from, or transfers from a hospital. This would allow providers to respond with information and/or clinical support.
EOHHS seeks your input about how an ENS may benefit your healthcare organization, or you as a healthcare provider.
Who should attend:
– Hospital Physicians and Nurses
– Primary Care Physicians, Physician Assistants and Nurses
– Community Health Center Providers
– Health IT Professionals from hospitals, community health centers, and other primary care sites
