Health Information Exchanges Will Affect Community Services, and we will see some of the impact as early as the first quarter of 2014. The way your state is implementing the Affordable Care Act and building its Health Information Exchange will shape how many community services are delivered and funded.
The following are some of the key policy, planning and implementation issues that will affect community based services in your state and local community:
- Coverage levels for Medicaid Expansion, and the extent of expansion in your state;
- Types of services being covered (the managed care organizations have some flexibility here);
- Policies shaping the development of the Health Information Exchange (HIE);
- Ways that the state is using federal planning and early implementation funds, and how much is being done to help community providers build capacity;
- Information and data system requirements being made by the HIE;
- Extent of technical assistance being provided by the state and HIE to counties and community service providers;
- Level of cost sharing for development and implementation of systems;
- Burden of information system development on community providers, especially small nonprofit organizations.
