Health Information Exchange

Last Updated on June 15, 2022

Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) has partnered with Contexture to begin an Arizona statewide health information exchange (HIE) initiative. As an AHCCCS health plan, Health Choice Arizona is asking our providers to participate in this initiative as the more providers that are in the system, the more benefits there are for both providers and coordinating patient care.  

Signing up for the HIE through Contexture gives you many benefits like:

  • Improves care coordination and transitions
    of care
  • Reduces duplicate tests and procedures
  • Helps avoid costly mistakes and improves patient safety
  • Saves time by eliminating calls, faxes to
    other providers
  • Reduces costs and improves health outcomes

 

HIE Onboarding Program

Through funding available from the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS), Contexture offers the HIE Onboarding Program to support the participation of eligible AHCCCS hospitals and providers in statewide health information exchange (HIE). 

The program provides an administrative offset in recognition of the costs the eligible HIE participant has incurred to complete bidirectional HIE connectivity.  Due to limited funding, this program is available on a first come, first served basis.

The financial administrative offset payments are as follows:

Community Provider (1-25 providers)         $5,000

Hospital                                                  $20,000

Community Provider (26+ providers)        $10,000

FQHC, FQHC Look-Alike & RHC      $10,000
