Description

Please join the Alliance and VNAA for a webinar on potential improvements in HIT funding for home health agencies that are Medicaid providers. This webinar will feature Thomas Novak, Medicaid Interoperability Lead for the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC). The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) new initiative is aimed at better connecting the Medicaid program by broadening the scope of providers available for the 90% enhanced matching funds. States are now able to claim 90 percent HITECH matching for expenditures which connect eligible providers to other Medicaid providers, including home health providers. The initiative, which was announced in February of this year, is meant to facilitate better and more timely data sharing between a patient’s numerous providers. More information is available through the CMS Blog here, CMS’s letter to state Medicaid directors here, and this article from Healthcare DIVE.
