Project Notify

Early 2016, the Centers of Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) provided updated guidance on the availability of federal funding at the 90 percent matching rate for state expenditures on activities to promote health information exchange (HIE) and encourage the adoption of certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) technology by certain Medicaid providers.
DSS intends to take use Project Notify to reduce preventable emergency department readmissions and improve care coordination for better health outcomes for Connecticut’s Medicaid beneficiaries, as well as engaging the provider community and care managers informed. DSS will implement an automated real-time standard distribution and routing for ADT health alerts to Connecticut Medicaid providers and case managers, as well as provide Alert Notifications using standard model to primary care physicians (PCPs), specialists and other groups such as home health for Inpatient & ED Admit/Discharges.
