Please be advised that Midwest Health Connection (MHC) has funding available to cover the one-time implementation costs associated with connecting to MHC’s Health Information Exchange (HIE) network. Previously the Onboarding Program was limited to certain Medicaid providers. The funding is now available to any Medicaid Provider, under the Meaningful Use program, and will be used to connect your organization to MHC without incurring any costs for:
- Implementation/Onboarding costs to establish a connection between MHC and the EP/EH EHR. Onboarding to the MHC HIE network requires a data interface to be established between the MHC HIE network and a provider’s EHR system so that a bi-directional exchange of health data can be accomplished and facilitated;
- MHC’s first year of Annual Subscription Fees for services; and
- The EHR interface fee assessed by your EHR vendor to establish an interface connection to MHC.
MHC strongly encourages any Missouri Medicaid provider to contact MHC as soon as possible to get in the queue to onboard to MHC’s HIE network by taking advantage of the funding available. MHC must have you onboarded before September 2021 in order to waive the Onboarding fees. If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity to onboard to the MHC HIE network, please direct all inquiries to Angie Bass at (573)777-4550 or ABass@MHC-HIE.org.
