Event Notification Service

​Event Notification Service (ENS)

KHIE's Event Notification Service offers the ability to inform providers about specific healthcare events that have occurred with specific patients in their care for the purposes of treatment, quality improvement, and care coordination activities.

Partnering with KHIE to receive clinical event notifications about a patient's specific medical encounter can keep providers 'in the know' as their patients transition from various healthcare settings back to the practice. The use of Event Notifications to inform healthcare providers when a patient is admitted to or discharged from an Emergency Department, for example, supports care coordination activities across disparate providers.

There are three ways to receive event notifications through KHIE.

ePartnerViewer

When a notification is received, a participating healthcare clinician may use the ePartnerViewer to see additional information, such as discharge and follow-up instructions, related to the patient's treatment during the encounter.

API FHIR

The use case would begin with a Participant providing a list of active patients for whom they want to receive relevant notifications.

Direct Secure Messaging

The use case would begin with a participant providing a list of active patients for whom they want to receive relevant notifications.
