Active Care Relationship Service®

Identify the healthcare providers who need to receive updates on a patient’s health

Accurately routing a patient’s health information to their healthcare providers requires a current, easily-accessible database that connects patients to the providers caring for them.

The Active Care Relationship Service® (ACRS®) solution identifies providers who are actively caring for a patient. ACRS® promotes better-coordinated transitions of care by enabling physicians and care management teams to receive notifications when there are updates in a patient’s status.

Better care coordination using ACRS® means:

  • Improved post-discharge transitions
  • Prompt follow-up with patients
  • Faster, more effective communication among providers to support patients, especially those with multiple or chronic conditions

ACRS® enables organizations to submit data files which record the care team relationships attributing a particular patient with health professionals at that organization. These attributions are then utilized to accurately route information for a patient to all members of their care team.

Operating as a service, ACRS® enables authorized persons and organizations to search for healthcare providers who are involved in a patient’s care. Searches can be made from provider/physician organizations, other healthcare facilities/organizations, and payers.
