Medicaid Transformation resources

HCA’s HIT division manages the Clinical Data Repository (CDR) and Promoting Interoperability Program (PI), formerly the Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Payment Program. HIT is one of many programs under Healthier Washington.  

About the HIT Operational Plan

As part of our Medicaid Transformation work, CMS requires we have a strategy that supports service delivery and payment transformation. In response to this, we developed a Strategic Roadmap identifying activities that will advance health information exchange.

The Roadmap calls out specific tasks, which the annual Health IT Operational Plan outlines. We share progress on these tasks with stakeholders during monthly meetings and in quarterly reports to CMS.

About the CDR

The CDR is HCA’s secure, cloud-based database. It allows providers to share Apple Health enrollee health and claims information, regardless of the EHR platform. Providers are required to transmit health information to the CDR if they:

  • Received PI payments.
  • Have a certified EHR.
  • Support Apple Health enrollees.

For more information about the CDR program or CDR access, please contact HIT.

Visit the HIT webpages to learn more about the CDR.

About the EHR Payment Program (PI Program)

Until 2021, hospitals and eligible health care providers serving Apple Health clients can get federal funding to set up and use a certified EHR system. The PI Program helps hospitals and providers switch from unsecured paper records to secure electronic systems. Since 2011, this program has made thousands of payments, totaling more than $360 million.

To learn more about the PI Program, including incentive funds, visit the HIT webpages.

In April 2017, HCA formed the Medicaid Value-based Payment (MVP) Action Team to support the Demonstration. The group serves as a learning collaborative to support MCOs, providers, and Accountable Communities of Health as they implement value-based strategies.

MVP meetings

MVP Action Team meetings are open to the public. Due to space constraints, it is recommended that attendees join via webinar. Meeting materials will be available on our website shortly after the meetings.
