-PCP practices encouraged to transition to patient-centered medical homes-

ALBANY, N.Y. – The New York State Department of Health (DOH) recently notified Hixny, one of New York’s leading health information exchanges (HIEs), that primary care provider (PCP) practices in the process of transitioning to New York State patient-centered medical home (NYS PCMH) status, will be required to attest to their progress connecting to, and using an HIE.

This is an effort undertaken as part of the DOH partnership with the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) to advance PCP-to-PCMH practice transformation.

Hixny will help satisfy NCQA requirements while acknowledging a number of different variables that might be affecting the completion of a practice’s transition. Hixny offers assistance in three ways: participation, implementation and optimization.

Practices who have questions should contact Hixny for more information.
