State Medicaid Agencies' Initiatives on Health Information Technology and Health Information Exchange [open pdf - 467KB]
The objective of this report was to assess State Medicaid agencies' initiatives on health information technology (HIT) and health information exchange (HIE). "We based this study on a survey of all State Medicaid directors and on structured telephone interviews with State Medicaid directors who reported that they have current or planned HIT and HIE initiatives. In addition, we reviewed documentation of State HIT and HIE initiatives and interviewed officials from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) who are involved in this area or in the implementation of Medicaid Information Technology Architecture (MITA), which is a framework developed by CMS to help States modernize their Medicaid information systems."
