As the behavioral healthcare industry transitions to managed care, New York State has provided funding resources through the Behavioral Health Information Technology (BH-IT) grant to assist providers who have been approved to offer Home and Community Based Services (HCBS). In order for agencies providing Home and Community Based Services to participate in the transition to managed care the state has designated certain technology requirements that must be met.
Those requirements include:
- Input data into Electronic Health Records (EHRs)
- Access data from EHRs
- Share health information among providers to improve integrated services, sustain financial viability, and reduce health care costs via reduction in Emergency Room/Inpatient services
- Align with:
- Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) Performing Provider System (PPS)
- Health Homes (HH)
- Regional Health Information Organizations (RHIO)
- State Health Information Network of New York (SHIN-NY)
TenEleven is proud to be placed on the BH-IT HCBS Pre-Qualified Vendor List: having met all the initial technical functionalities required in the Request for Information document to provide the HCBS technical specs as defined by the Department of Health and the Office of Mental Health of the State of New York.
