Grantee Recognition Program logo

The State HIE Grantee Recognition Program recognizes grantees who have achieved milestones in the areas of e-prescribing, directed exchange, and query-based exchange. Round Four of the GRP updates previous rounds to reflect current data and new achievements, as indicated below.

e-Prescribing

In Rounds One, Two, and Three, announced in June, October, and December 2012, the GRP recognized 34 grantees for their achievements in e-prescribing. Round Four, announced in March 2013, recognizes Arizona and New Hampshire for moving from Milestone #1 to Milestone #2.

Directed Exchange

In Rounds One, Two, and Three, the GRP recognized 23 grantees for their achievements in enabling users for directed exchange. Round Four adds 6 grantees to this list (Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Iowa, Missouri, and Oklahoma), and recognizes California for moving from Milestone #1 to Milestone #2.

Query-Based Exchange

In Rounds One, Two, and Three, the GRP recognized 18 grantees for their achievements in enabling users for query-based exchange. Round Four adds 3 grantees to this list (California, Oklahoma, and Rhode Island), and recognizes New Jersey for moving from Milestone #1 to Milestone #2.

Accelerating Exchange

Round Four of the GRP recognizes states for leading the charge in increasing active use of exchange. The top ten states in accelerating directed and query-based exchange were chosen based on the percent increase in directed transactions and patient record queries from Q3 to Q4.

Top ten states for increases in directed exchange: Alaska, District of Columbia, Florida, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri, Washington

Top ten states for increases in query-based exchange: California, Colorado, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Utah

*Grantee recognition based on December 2012 data. Surescripts data are currently not reliable for the U.S. territories.

**Recognition for Query and Direct is based on Quarterly Progress Report Implementation Metrics 2 (Clinical and Administrative Staff Enabled for Directed Exchange) and 8 (Clinical and Administrative Staff Enabled for Query-Based Exchange). Milestone #1 for measuring progress was set using the 30% of REC target number listed in Appendix D of ONC PIN 2 [PDF - 376 KB]. Milestone #2 is double Milestone #1, i.e. twice the 30% of REC target number listed in Appendix D.

***Recognition for gains in use of Directed and Query-Based Exchange is based on Quarterly Progress Report Implementation Metrics 13 (Directed Transactions) and 17 (Patient Record Queries). Gains are measured by the percent increase in directed transactions and patient record queries from 2012 Quarter 3 to 2012 Quarter 4.
