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
Community Provider (26+ providers) $10,000
FQHC, FQHC Look-Alike & RHC $10,000
