Grant to a Washington, DC organization to provide District Medicaid providers with onboarding support for a health information tool. Funding is intended to connect as many health providers as possible to the information exchange system in order to provide patients with safe, high-quality, and integrated care.
This request for applications (RFA) seeks proposals for a multi-year grant to provide full-service HIE onboarding support, including implementation and training, to District providers who are eligible professionals (EPs) in the Promoting Interoperability program, as well as Medicaid providers with whom EPs refer patients – or could potentially refer - patients.
This grant will support the HIE connectivity of remaining Medicaid in-patient facilities, behavioral health providers (in coordination with the Department of Behavioral Health), small, medium and large clinics, dentists, EMS and home health providers in the District. The grantee shall ensure that financial and technical assistance and training is provided free of charge and that nearly all Medicaid providers will be sending and receiving clinical and encounter information via HIE by the end of the grant period.
CMS funding is intended to support EPs in meeting Stage 3 meaningful use (MU) requirements under HITECH regulations and guidance. This grant will support EPs ability to meet the following MU objectives:
1. MU Objective #7 (Health Information Exchange), Measure 1: EPs will be able to send summaries of care to other providers connected through this grant;
2. MU Objective #7 (Health Information Exchange), Measure 2: EPs will be able to receive summaries of care and ingest them into their certified EHRs;
3. MU Objective #7 (Health Information Exchange), Measure 3: EPs will be able to view medications, allergies and current problem lists populated by other Medicaid providers.
