News and Notes


Provider HIE Connection News:

  • 7 Providers are in the Installing Phase and should Go-Live Soon
  • 3 of the 6 Providers in the Testing Phase are well positioned to also Go-Live in Production Soon
  • WA DOH reviewing security concerns for Web Services option

Providers Requiring More than 1 Test DQA :

  • The Test DQA that required a 2nd run was for Pullman Memorial Hospital

Continued Issue Mitigation:

  • A web services connection option is being planned for upcoming implementation.  This option will allow providers with numerous EHR types to now onboard.  These providers were previously unable to onboard through the HIE due to the AS2 connection requirement.  The connection type will begin implementation upon receiving security approval by WA DOH officials.
  • Providers who are slow to respond to next-step requests are being contacted by phone and e-mail.
