Active Care Relationship Service® (ACRS®)

Identify the healthcare providers who need to receive updates on a patient’s health

Accurately routing a patient’s health information to their healthcare providers requires a current, easily-accessible database that connects patients to the providers caring for them.

Active Care Relationship Service (ACRS®) is used to identify providers who are actively caring for a patient. ACRS promotes safe, secure transmission of patient level data to providers with a formal treatment relationship. ACRS promotes better-coordinated transitions of care by enabling physicians and care management teams to receive notifications when there are updates in a patient’s status. ACRS enables organizations to submit data files which record the care team relationships attributing a particular patient with health professionals at that organization. These attributions are then utilized to accurately route information for a patient to all members of their care team.

Better care coordination using ACRS means:

Improved post-discharge transitions

Prompt follow-up with patients

Faster, more effective communication among providers to support patients, especially those with multiple or chronic conditions

ACRS enables organizations to submit data files which record the care team relationships attributing a particular patient with health professionals at that organization. These attributions are then utilized to accurately route information for a patient to all members of their care team.

Operating as a service, ACRS enables authorized persons and organizations to search for healthcare providers who are involved in a patient’s care. Searches can be made from provider/physician organizations, other healthcare facilities/organizations, and payers.
