THA is expanding its Health Information Network (HIN) to provide an Event Notification Service (ENS) to hospitals across the state.

ENS offers the opportunity for hospitals to engage in better overall care coordination, reduce hospital readmissions, and ensure proper follow-up care is received for their patients.

About ENS

Encounter Notification Service® (ENS®), powered by Audacious Inquiry (Ai), is a low-complexity and high value population health management tool. ENS technology is easily deployable and relies on basic healthcare data in the ADT message.

Implementation

THA is implementing ENS for all member hospitals in the state by the end of 2017. Non-member hospitals are also eligible to participate to take advantage of the program's benefits.


More Info

THA is expanding its Health Information Network (HIN) to provide an Event Notification Service (ENS) to hospitals across the state. When a patient has a hospital or emergency department admission, discharge, or transfer (ADT) event, information about that patient’s visit (including, but not limited to, demographic information, information on the source facility, and primary complaint) is collected, packaged into a clinical event notification, and sent securely to the following entities:

  • Any participating hospital with an existing relationship with that patient
  • TennCare (Tennessee Medicaid) if the patient is an eligible TennCare member

ENS offers the opportunity for hospitals to engage in better overall care coordination, reduce hospital readmissions, and ensure proper follow-up care is received for their patients.

THA HIN

The THA Health Information Network (THA HIN) was formed in 1999 by the Tennessee Hospital Association to assist member hospitals in meeting the state mandated hospital discharge data reporting requirements.
