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