A few “early adopters” were contributing basic data, such as patient demographics and medication history, and an e-prescribing initiative was underway.

The passage of The American Reinvestment & Recovery Act (ARRA) in February of 2009 made what Hixny was doing even more important. Among its provisions were requirements for the “meaningful use” of health information technology, which financial incentives and penalties for providers attached.

After an extensive RFP process, FirstGateways was replaced in 2009 with InterSystems Corp.

Hixny will be performing extended maintenance beginning Thursday, December 31 through Friday, January 1. During this time, all services
will be impacted and unavailable—including access to the provider portal.
