Funding: In October of 2014, PHA and the Indiana Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) partnered to receive a 90/10 matching grant (for which Purdue pays the 10%) of $2.3M from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to extend quality reporting services to Medicaid-eligible EPs until 2017. An additional $4.39M continued the program until September of 2020 as well as expanded the service offerings. In November of 2018, $12M from CMS allowed PHA and the FSSA to continue to provide direct, technical assistance to the state’s Medicaid providers for another two years as well as to address several clinical challenges impacting long-term care and the opioid crisis.
Under contract with the FSSA, Purdue will work closely with four, high-need Indiana communities in 2019 and 2020 to design and implement new care models, process improvements, and technology systems that advance EHR interoperability, patient education, medication management, care transitions, clinical decision support, and population health. To inquire about participation in the either the long term care initiative or the opioids initiative, contact Randy Hountz, PHA Director, at (765) 494-0766 or email@example.com.
