Provider Organizations subject to the HIway Connection Requirement must submit annual documentation attesting to their efforts to implement health information exchange use cases.
Starting in 2021, Acute Care Hospitals will also need to submit information regarding participation in the Statewide ENS Framework.
Provider Organizations must submit via online Attestation and Exception Webforms. The HIway provides PDF versions of the forms to enable providers in preparing responses for completing the online attestation, but the HIway will not accept digital/scanned PDF submissions.
The 2021 attestations start August 2, 2021. The deadline to submit attestations regarding your 2020 use cases and ENS participation is October 31, 2021.
