2013 Format

Requirement ID:



Support for Notification and Response


STATEMENT: Upon notification by an external, authoritative source of a health risk within the cared for population, alert relevant providers regarding specific potentially at-risk patients with the appropriate level of notification.
DESCRIPTION: After receiving a notice of a health risk within a cared-for population from public health authorities or other external authoritative sources:
1. Identify and notify individual care providers or care managers that a risk has been identified and requires attention; and
2. Provide suggestions on the appropriate course of action.
A care provider now has the ability to decide how patients are notified, if necessary.
For example, this function may be used after detection of a local outbreak of hepatitis A, advising providers of the at-risk population and potential prophylactic treatment.
A second example might be the dissemination of new care guidelines for elderly patients with a specific chronic disease.
Notifications to clinicians or patients may occur by telephone, email, FAX or other methods
