PA Awards Grants to Improve Coordination of Care for Medicaid Patients

The Pennsylvania Department of Human Services has awarded $8 million in grant money “…to increase efficiency in the delivery of health care services to Medicaid patients.”

According to a DHS news release announcing the grants,

The grants will help connect hospitals, nursing homes, and ambulatory practices to the Pennsylvania Patient & Provider Network, or P3N, which enables electronic health information exchange (eHIE) across the state through the connection of health care providers to health information organizations (HIO), and the participation of the HIOs in the P3N.

Dividing the $8 million are the Clinical/Connect Health Information Exchange, the HealthShare Exchange, the Keystone Health Information Exchange, and the  Mount Nittany Exchange.
