NC HealthConnex Update

Last summer the North Carolina Health Information Exchange Authority (NC HIEA) worked with the NC General Assembly to pass legislation that extended the connectivity deadline to NC HealthConnex, the State-designated health information exchange, to January 1, 2023. That legislation also required a large scale effort to report to legislators on the status of statewide connectivity. NCPA members who are currently unconnected to the NC HealthConnex will be receiving letters this spring from the North Carolina Department of Information Technology. The purpose of these letters is to share information about the Statewide Health Information Exchange Act and how to connect to NC HealthConnex. NCPA members can access this NC HIEA Fact Sheet and What to Expect Infographic for more information. Click here to read information that NCPA has previously posted on this news.
