News - Clinical Data Repository and HealthIT in Washington State

The text of the ”Provider Requirement Letter” announced the upcoming implementation of an HCA Clinical Data Repository (CDR) during 2016. To determine if you as a provider are required to participate at this time please use the “Decision Tree”. If you are able to answer “yes” to all three criteria questions, then the requirement pertains to you.
 
  1. Is your organization part of a Managed Care Organization, providing care for Apple Health enrollees assigned to managed care?
  2. Does your organization/clinic have an Electronic Health Record (EHR) system? (instead of paper records)
  3. If you answered yes to question #2, does this EHR have 2014 certification (as determined by the Office of the National Coordinator)?

If you are required, or if you are interested in joining in these efforts, please register with the HIE and begin readiness process for the CDR.

The EHR vendor and provider preparations are continuing, in parallel with our efforts. OneHealthPort is offering monthly webinars for them to assist in connecting two and using the CDR:
