The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), in collaboration with Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) have revived the Community of Practice (CoP) focused on leveraging Federal financial participation (FFP), including the 90 percent FFP State administrative match (a.k.a. 90/10) for Medicaid Health Information Technology (HIT) activities.  The proposed participants in this CoP will include representatives from public health agencies (e.g., MU Coordinators, HIT Coordinators), state Medicaid offices and national public health associations.

This CoP will provide a collaborative forum for public health agencies (PHAs) to:

  • Identify common barriers and challenges to obtaining FFP for public health related HIT activities
  • Share successful models and approaches used to obtain FFP
  •  Establish best practices to identify and coordinate intra-agency initiatives and projects that may qualify for funding
  •  Develop guidance for HIT Implementation Advance Planning Documents (IAPD)
  •  Identify key aspects for successful communications and planning with State Medicaid agencies
  • Share the latest updates and opportunities for PHAs

This CoP will meet on a bi-weekly basis starting August 12, 2016. Pre-registration is required to join these meetings.
