Funds should be used to increase the use of interoperable HIT (health information technology) tools and HIE (health information exchange) services among providers that were not eligible for EHR incentive programs.
The program will help increase the number of non-eligible care providers who are able to send, receive, find, and use electronic health information in a manner that is appropriate, standardized, secure, timely, and reliable for both senders and receivers. Exchanging of health information is both critical to enable care coordination and other improvements and to support both individual and community health.
Projects should focus on the following three areas:
- Identify a specific non-eligible care provider population - those who will ultimately use the HIE service or tool
- Extend an existing HIE service or use case
- Engagement strategy for use by the non-eligible care provider population
Non-profit organizations, state or local government, agency or group
