Who can participate?
Any Medicaid enrolled provider can participate. MN EAS enables providers throughout the state to receive patient encounter alerts, regardless of electronic health record (EHR) vendor or hospital system/network. Providers who are exchanging notifications with some partners still benefit, as the MN EAS enables them to simplify the process of getting a more complete timely picture without establishing many additional connections.
Providers who are already connected to an HIO can participate through their HIO, and MN EAS allows them to get greater value because alerts are more consistent, complete, and not only dependent on which other providers have joined the HIO.
