This session will look at strategies to advance health IT, health information exchange and interoperability through Medicaid funded long term services and supports (LTSS) programs in both institutional and Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) settings. Through an interactive panel discussion, this session will review the “CMS-ONC Health IT Toolkit for Medicaid Funded Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Programs”, a toolkit which helps states examine some of the key building blocks needed to develop an optimized health IT ecosystem for advancing the HCBS Medicaid program objectives. The session will also look at actual state programmatic strategies being used by Georgia and Minnesota to advance health IT alignment and interoperability through the CMS TEFT Grant.  As part of this grant, Minnesota and Georgia developed and piloted applications that each state designed to support coordination and collaboration among care teams for beneficiaries served through the States’ HCBS programs.
