NC HIE Extension Process Available Now for Those Who Fall Under the June 2018 Deadline

Physicians who have electronic health record technology and who receive funds from Medicaid for the provision of health care services are able to apply for an extension to the connection process to the NC Health Information Exchange or NC HealthConnex. This is for those who have demonstrated a “good faith effort” to comply with the State’s requirements for connection by the June 1 deadline, but have been unable to due to factors outside of their control.

NC HealthConnex notes that this process is not a waiver or exemption from the law and does not place any provider currently in onboarding with NC HealthConnex “on hold.” It simply allows more time for the technical onboarding to occur to be in compliance with the HIE Act.
