North Carolina Healthconnx
My Clients Plus is working with the NC HIEA to build a connection to NC HealthConnex. NC Healthconnx are planning to release the ability for any participants to request an extension until December 31, 2022.
Please Note: We would strongly encourage any My Clients Plus subscribers to sign the participation agreement as soon as possible as in the past this has been used to demonstrate making a good faith effort to connect and for them to be considered in the onboarding queue.
Participation agreements can be found here.
You may not be subject to connect to submit data to NC Health Connex until 2021 at the earliest. Certain providers are exempt entirely from the legislation. See here if this applies to you.
Information from the 5/5/2020 NC HealthConnex COVID-19 Special Update:
COVID-19 Recovery Act Provides Relief to HIE Act June 1 Deadline
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the COVID-19 Recovery Act (NCSL 2020-3) was signed into law by Governor Roy Cooper on Monday, May 4. Section 3E.1.(a) addresses the connection requirement to the state-designated HIE Network - NC HealthConnex, extending the June 1, 2020, connection deadline to October 1, 2021. In addition, all providers who have shown a good faith effort to connect to NC HealthConnex and have a valid Participation Agreement on file will also have the extended deadline of October 1, 2021. This extension of time will allow the large queue of health care providers who are in active onboarding to complete the connection process. Connecting to NC HealthConnex can take up 12 months, depending on your EHR software.
Please note: If you were mandated to connect by June 1, 2020, your new deadline is October 1, 2021. Providers who have signed a Participation Agreement do not need to take further action. The NC HealthConnex technical team will reach out when technical discussions are to begin with your practice.
