The NC HealthConnex technology and tools provide near real-time, comprehensive clinical data about your patients. You must have the following to connect to NC HealthConnex.
- Technology in place: The NC Health Information Exchange Authority's participation agreement requests that EHRs be minimally capable of sending HL7 messages, version 2 or higher. The first step is to have the ability to send HL7 messages (version 2.0 or higher) to enable the technical connection and data submission to NC HealthConnex. EHR products that are ONC certified for meaningful use for the for Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services Incentive Programs are preferred.
When choosing an EHR vendor, please provide the minimum requirements listed above.
Note: Legislation has been introduced in the N.C. General Assembly (NCSL 2020-3) that could impact certain providers’ connectivity requirements should the legislation be signed into law. Prior to signing any contractual agreement for EHR technology, please review whether these potential changes could affect your organization.
We are continuously connecting to additional vendors who are capable of sending HL7 or CCD messages, and they will be added to the website as they go live.
See below for a list of the EHR vendors that are currently connected and sending data to NC HealthConnex.
