RFP Title and Description
Community-Based Health Information Exchange Onboarding Program
OHA requests proposals from Community-Based HIEs to onboard (create the initial connection to) Medicaid providers. The Community-Based HIEs must provide meaningful HIE opportunities and play a vital role for Medicaid in Oregon communities. A Community-Based HIE provides, at a minimum, core HIE services (a community health record plus support for referrals and/or lab results delivery or delivery of results from other ancillary services) and facilitates the exchange of health and health-related information among unaffiliated stakeholders regardless of the electronic health record (EHR) they use. Participation must be open to unaffiliated participants (need not be members of the same provider organization such as a hospital system, Independent Provider Association (IPA), Integrated Delivery Network (IDN), CCO, etc.), and participants must not be required to use the same EHR vendor or exchange data through a solution that requires use of a specific EHR. Contractor(s) may also be eligible to receive support for the initial connection between Contractor(s) and entities or services related to Oregon’s planned network of networks in order to provide more value for the Medicaid providers that Contractor(s) have onboarded, further leveraging the investments the State makes in Contractor(s). This program will be funded with 90 percent federal funding from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
OHA expects to award Contracts to one or more Proposers for the Work described in this RFP through September 30, 2021. OHA anticipates the overall not-to-exceed (NTE) amount of all awarded Contract(s) combined will not exceed $25,000,000 for the Program through September 30, 2021. Actual funding will depend on availability of state and federal funding. If multiple Contracts are awarded, initial Contracts, as well as any extensions, increases in value, and all other amendments may vary from Contractor to Contractor.
