As announced in February, Rochester RHIO has begun its transition to electronic applications. We are pleased to reveal the new, online Individual and Group DIRECT Applications. The electronic application allows RHIO Administrators to authorize their user access for DIRECT application via the secure Provider Portal.
After logging in, RHIO Admins can click “Forms” in the upper right hand corner of the portal. Admins then complete the application for a user within their organization and click “Submit.” Then our team will begin processing the application! The electronic applications will eventually replace mailed, emailed or faxed paper enrollment applications. The next applications to go online are Alerts and eMOLST. Stay tuned!
For questions, contact the Customer Support Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-877-865-7446 (RHIO).
As highlighted by the Healthcare Association of New York State (HANYS) in May 2016, the “…chaos of the current healthcare measurement environment” calls for healthcare providers to report hundreds of measures to government, commercial payers, accreditation agencies, professional societies, registries, and other organizations. While groups like HANYS work to lobby for a more consolidated approach to metrics and reporting, the RHIO wants to assist member organizations today in maintaining a consolidated, updated location for metrics issued by various entities.

The data provided in the Community Measures Crosswalk begins with the CMS Master List, issued by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. We have started the process of identifying those measures that practices in our community have a need to access by adding tabs for MACRA, PCMH, FQHC, HEDIS, GRIPA, and more. Over time, new tabs will be added for individual payer programs, as well as other organizations or programs that issue metrics determined to be useful to the healthcare community. We anticipate each tab to be updated quarterly, or more often, as significant metrics updates are published.
This information source will be a living set of documents. Comments and suggestions should be sent to: email@example.com.
The Community Measures Crosswalk Workgroup is a subgroup of the Rochester PCMH Collaborative. Members include:
