Provider Registry 

DSS’s Enterprise Provider Registry (EPR) went into production September 2017.  This technology solution provides a consolidated view of provider information across and within subscribing systems. Currently, many organizations around the State, both public and private, maintain their own provider registries and the data in these registries are often out-of-date. These discrepancies create workflow issues when providers and organizations contact each other and request patient information or when people are trying to find service providers in their neighborhood. This solution provides a consolidated view of provider information across disparate source systems as well as basic reporting tools for ongoing maintenance of the accurate information.

EPR currently integrates provider data coming from the following sources: DSS Medicaid Provider Enrollment, the DSS Medicaid Medical ASO, National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES), and data extracts from the Allied Health LTSS program.
