Electronic Long-Term Services and Supports (eLTSS) Pilot - Connecticut Department of Social Services Division of Health Services

The eLTSS (Electronic Long-Term Services and Supports) pilots will facilitate the development of basic elements for eventual inclusion in electronic standards. These standards will enable the creation, exchange and re-use of interoperable service plans by beneficiaries, community-based long-term services and supports providers, payers, health care providers and the individuals they serve. Connecticut Department of Social Services Division of Health Services is a recipient of the Testing Experience and Functional Tool (TEFT) planning grant. They focus on empowering consumers through the use of Health IT. They are comprised of staff from the CT Department of Social Services & the University of Connecticut. The team goes out into the community to gather input from consumers & advocates on how HealthIT solutions can best serve consumers. They have developed educational materials, and will offer PHR training to users. The team engages consumers & advocates in interactive dialogues, allowing them to express their views on Health IT while providing feedback on the project. They analyze consumer & advocate responses in order to better understand their concerns. CT will pilot the ability to create & share an eLTSS Plan. CT will also evaluate the utility of the established domains & subdomains. The CT team will pilot a version of User Story 2, “Sharing a Person-Centered eLTSS Plan”.
