Use Cases: Admission, Data, and Transfer (ADT) Alerts

Admission, Discharge, and Transfer (ADT) alerts are a benefit of the NJHIN, and a key feature which shares critical information regarding patient status, location, and more. When a patient is admitted, discharged, or transferred to/from a facility, an ADT alert is created by the hospital’s EHR system and sent to NJHIN.
