ED Patient Transfer Communication Application
The iVantage ED Patient Transfer Communication application built into the iVantage EDManage suite enables hospitals to track and report on their progress in a critical area of inter-facility communication: patient transfers. This element of delivering safe, high quality care relates to a larger federal initiative called the Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP). In our effort to support the grantees, networks and hospitals participating in the MBQIP initiative, iVantage has developed the standalone ED Patient Transfer Communication application to serve and support these entities not already using EDManage, free-of-charge.

Hospitals not already using the iVantage EDManage or EDManage+ applications will need to first sign up using the blue button above. This step should be performed by a quality director, ED manager, or someone within the facility leading the MBQIP initiative. Upon registering, an iVantage analyst will contact you to complete the forms process and to provide initial training. Once activated, there is no limit to how many users you may set up to log transfer communication data.
What is MBQIP?
As defined by HRSA, “the goal of the Flex Medicare Beneficiary Quality Improvement Project (MBQIP) is to improve rural quality care access for Medicare beneficiaries served by critical access hospitals (CAHs). These resources address the challenges of defining and reporting rural-relevant quality measurements and adopting proven clinical delivery models that drive quality and performance-based value. They also provide an overview of the goals, expectations, and measures for MBQIP.”
All 45 States with Critical Access Hospitals across the U.S. have made individual commitments to support this project across their rural and Critical Access Hospital hospital networks.
