Using the eTAR submission process, providers can create, update, inquire on and view responses for TARs online. Providers also have access to resources such as the “Code Search Tool” for code inquires. Using the eTAR system eliminates mail and paper processing time. Most hospitals find this as essential to prompt patient care. It avoids the creation of paper and fax transmissions to other providers and maintains control over electronic records, and tracks transfers.
