We track our hospitalizations by using ENS®, which provides real-time notice of patient healthcare encounters from acute and post-acute care facilities across Florida. These healthcare facilities send admit-discharge-transfer (ADT) messages in real-time, and ENS® compares them to patient lists provided by subscribing healthcare organizations. When a listed patient receives care at a participating facility, subscribers receive an alert containing details about that patient’s health encounter.
This is a unique solution to EasyLiving. On top of making our data more accurate, other benefits of using this software include the ability for us to reach out to families right away to let them know if their loved one has been hospitalized, as families are often unaware that their loved one is in the hospital.
