The North Carolina General Assembly created the NC Health Information Exchange Authority (NCHIEA) last September to oversee and administer the state’s existing HIE. The legislation also requires that, as of February 1, 2018, all Medicaid providers be connected to the NC HIE in order to continue to receive payments for Medicaid services provided.
Since January, the NC HIEA has been working diligently to deliver a modernized HIE that will be more robust and of value to you as physicians and physician assistants and to the whole provider community.
“Physicians working in value-driven models right now have emphasized how important it is for them to have real-time access to clinical data for their own patients and population-level data to evaluate how they are doing compared to others,” said NCMS President Docia Hickey, MD.
The North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) is in regular contact with NCHIEA staff to help communicate their progress to you and to represent your interests as this new HIE takes shape. The HIE is crucial to the successful transformation of our health care system and the move to value-based care. Please read this update from the NCHIEA, which includes a progress report as well as important information for those who were previously connected to the HIE via CCNC. Read the update.
