Purpose

Advance Interoperable Health Information Technology Services to Support Health Information Exchange awards will fund interstate and intrastate efforts to provide training, education, and technical assistance services to minimize barriers and support care providers with incorporating health information exchange to improve care coordination, population management, and measurement reporting.

Grantees should use partnerships to send, receive, find, and use a common clinical data set across unaffiliated organizations. These partnerships will improve care coordination, promote a learning community, and promote self-management by offering individuals access to their medical records where they live/work.

Grantees must be states, territories, or state designated entities (SDEs), however intrastate, interstate, and regional partnerships are encouraged.

Applicants must serve one eligible care provider, which include:

  • Eligible professionals
  • Critical Access Hospitals/Rural Hospitals

AND at least two non-eligible care providers, which include:

  • Long-term care and post-acute care providers
  • Behavioral health providers
  • Individuals
  • Other settings and care providers (i.e. safety net providers, public health, social services, emergency medical services, learners, researchers)

This funding is intended to focus on populations and care settings where health IT adoption and use lags behind, including rural and underserved communities.

Eligible applicants are existing program grantees who were awarded under funding opportunity number IX-IX-15-001.
