The eHealth Partnership Program awarded onboarding grants to help connect inpatient hospitals/facilities, outpatient practices/providers, and other eligible providers to the Pennsylvania Patient & Provider Network, or P3N. The grant program was made available to Pennsylvania HIOs to enable the connection of inpatient hospitals/facilities, and outpatient practices/providers participating in the Medicaid Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Program.

The onboarding grant serves several important purposes:

  • Help providers deliver higher quality and more efficient care, particularly through better care coordination for patients covered by Medicaid
  • Support provider participation in private-sector HIOs by offsetting connection costs
  • Incentivize HIOs to join the P3N, a precondition for receiving funding
  • Support rapid movement toward the participation in eHIE and support various care reform efforts currently underway across the commonwealth
  • Defray up-front costs for individual providers to join an HIO, thus helping to achieve meaningful use and satisfy obligations under the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program
