Promoting Interoperability with Prescription Drug Monitoring Program (PDMP)
The Alabama Department of Public Health Meaningful Use team recently added new functionality where Eligible Providers who are currently participating in the PI Program can access the PDMP registry and run reports to show that they are actively engaged with this Specialized Registry during the reporting period. This documentation is required to meet the Public Health objectives and measures and can be submitted with the EP’s application for the Program Year for which they are attesting.
If you have technical issues with accessing and generating this report, please contact ADPH Helpdesk at 1-855-925-4767, Option 1.
Complete Your ACHN Agreements Before July 1
Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) will not be receiving a capitated payment in October 2019. The Alabama Coordinated Health Network (ACHN) program will be implemented on October 1, 2019, and providers will need to complete ACHN agreements as soon as possible before July 1, 2019, in order to receive bonus and participation payments. The end date for the Patient 1st Program is approaching, and providers will be required to have completed agreements with both Medicaid and the ACHN.
Providers can visit this link to download the PCP Enrollment Agreement with Medicaid or to obtain information about the ACHNs. To obtain a copy of the PCP and DHCP agreement with the ACHN, contact the ACHN in your region. Providers can visit this link for ACHN contacts.
