Transitions of Care/Encounter Notifications Service

Transitions of Care Service

Velatura Public Benefit Corporation (Velatura) is always looking for opportunities to use a patient’s healthcare information to help in their daily care and recovery after an emergency. One way Velatura accomplishes this task is through services and use cases that push the patient’s information in real time to the members of their established care team.

As defined by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, ‘Transitions of care’ includes:

The movement of a patient from one setting of care (hospital, ambulatory primary care practice, ambulatory specialty care practice, long-term care, home health, rehabilitation facility) to another.

Velatura’s services help make sure that a patient’s information is available on each step of their medical journey, from home to clinic to hospital to discharge to home again.

To accomplish this, Velatura’s notification service leverages the Active Care Relationship Service and Provider Directory to link a patient with their care team, and then notify each member of that team, even assuring that they are informed of these transitions in their preferred method.

Encounter Notification Use Case

Admission, Discharge, Transfer (ADT) notifications are sent when a patient is admitted to a hospital, transferred to another facility, or discharged from the hospital. Notifications are then sent to update physicians and care management teams on a patient’s status, thus improving post-discharge transitions, prompting follow-up, improving communication among providers, and supporting patients with multiple or chronic conditions.

Medication Reconciliation Use Case

The Medication Reconciliation use case helps healthcare providers share patient medication information at time of discharge with other care team members and organizations, including physicians, practices, pharmacies, hospitals, and transitional facilities such as outpatient and skilled nursing facilities.
