​The Oregon Health Authority is pleased to announce the launch of the Health Information Exchange (HIE) Onboarding Program. The goal of the program is to facilitate the spread of electronic health information exchange across the state, specifically for Medicaid providers. Funded through a federal 90 percent match opportunity, the HIE Onboarding Program will provide financial support for certain initial costs of onboarding (connecting) priority Medicaid providers to the contracted HIE, Reliance eHealth Collaborative. Priority Medicaid providers identified for this program include behavioral health providers, oral health providers, critical physical health providers and others. Participation in the HIE Onboarding Program is completely voluntary. The contract is expected to run until September 30, 2021.
