The Health Information Exchange (HIE) Onboarding Program
An AHCCCS-funded program that supports bidirectional HIE connectivity
Through funding available from the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), Health Current offers the HIE Onboarding Program to support the participation of eligible AHCCCS hospitals and providers in statewide health information exchange (HIE).
The program provides an administrative offset in recognition of the costs the eligible HIE participant has incurred to complete bidirectional HIE connectivity. Due to limited funding, this program is available on a first come, first served basis.
- Improves care coordination and transitions of care
- Reduces duplicate tests and procedures
