Reminder: State Health Info Exchange Connection Deadline Begins In June

State law (NCSL 2017-57) mandates all health care providers who receive any state funds for the provision of health care services (e.g. Medicaid, NC Health Choice, State Health Plan, etc.) to connect to and submit patient demographic and clinical data by certain dates in 2018 and 2019.

Hospitals, physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners who provide Medicaid services and who have an electronic health record system must be connected by this June. Physicians and providers who not be able to connect by the mandated deadline may be granted an extension if certain criteria are met. Extensions are not an exemption from the state’s connection requirements but provide additional time. See HealthConnex’s Extension Process page for additional information.

The sooner you connect, the better. For more information, and to begin your connection process, visit, send email to, or call 919-754-6912.
