Health Information Exchange in New Hampshire
Where did we start from – How far have we come?
September 20, 2013
Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative
- 10 -
In 2010 we collectively established a high degree of
consensus around five strategies
1. Establish a sustainable organizational, governance, and technical
foundation for achievement of long term statewide health information
goals
2. Level-set individual providers’ abilities to meet Stage 1 Meaningful Use
criteria by facilitating e-Prescribing, lab results delivery, and patient care
summary exchange across the state
3. Catalyze the efforts of programs focused on HIT adoption
4. Expand availability of HIE services to providers that do not currently have
access to robust capabilities for health information exchange
5. Collaborate with Legislators to define the future policy governing HIE
purpose and participants

NH DHHS, NHHIO, the REC of NH, and many committed
volunteers have made steady progress ever since
Major accomplishments to date:
• The New Hampshire Health Information Organization (NHHIO) is now in place
• The NHHIO Board of Directors has been established, has set bylaws, has elected officers,
and has formed committees
• The Executive Director has been selected and NHHIO has been staffed for operations
• The Technical services provider, Orion Health, has been selected and is on board
• The contract with NH DHHS has been executed to transfer duties and funding to NHHIO
• The Participation Agreement, Policies & Procedures, and pricing has all been finalized and
is being used with new members
• Technical services have been configured and NHHIO has moved forward with 4 pilot sites
(Exeter, Seacoast Mental Health, Elliot, and DPH)
• The Legislature has passed legislation allowing public health to participate in NHHIO and
for PH reports to be sent via NHHIO – There is recent progress to align the HIE law with
HIPAA
• Alongside NHHIO and NH DHHS, the REC of NH has helped many of the state’s providers
and critical access hospitals implement and use EHRs.
• 26 organizations have kicked off with NHHIO and 10+ more are in the pipeline

What other “pain points” should we keep an eye on?
1. Focus first on those gaps we identified originally such as facilitating
medication reconciliation and transfers of care
2. Need to stay aligned with and support Accountable Care and Stage 2
Meaningful Use
3. Admission/Discharge/Transfer (ADT) transport and support of real time
notifications and alerting.
4. Stay out front with privacy & security issues
5. Help providers avoid building infrastructure and/or interfaces twice
6. Interstate connectivity
7. Address the needs of provider types that were left out of Meaningful Use
8. Facilitate administrative transactions such as prior authorizations, claims
eligibility, and claims status
9. Provide translation services (e.g., RxNorm, LOINC mapping)
10.Stay cognizant of market consolidation and adjust accordingly

NHHIO Legislative Updates
Update Definitions to Fully Align with HIPAA
 Undefined terms leads to ambiguity and misinterpretation of meaning
 “Healthcare Services” is not defined in provider definition
 “Treatment” is not defined under use and disclosure
Update Use and Disclosure to Fully Align with HIPAA
 Variability of transmission methods drives inconsistency and increased
cost
 Allow all parties currently receiving and reviewing PHI to do so using
safe, secure and auditable methods
 Patient engagement increases self-management, self-regulation, and
informed decision making process for clinical and cost effectiveness

NH HIE Facts: (RSA 332-I:2)
 A health care provider or business associate may disclose an individual's PHI
and information about the location of an individual's medical records to a HIE –
allows for Electronic Master Person Index (EMPI) (Phase 2)
 Individual must be given an opportunity to opt out of sharing his/her name,
address, and PHI through a HIE – information not sent to HIE, does not prevent
public health reporting
 Only a health care provider, for purposes of treatment, may access PHI in a HIE
– does not include patients or payors
 A HIE must maintain an audit log of health care providers who access PHI –
central site will maintain transmission logs
 When federal certification standards are established, a HIE must be certified to
be in compliance with nationally accepted interoperability standards and
practices – NHHIO is using Direct standards for message transport
 SB288 – Authorized reporting to Department of Health and Human Services
(DHHS) – AHEDD, Cancer Registry, Immunization Registry

Legal Language Updates
II.
In this chapter:
(a) The following terms have the same meaning as given in the regulations under sections 160,
262 and 264 of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA):
(1)
Business associate;
(2)
Use;
(3)
Disclosure; and
(4)
Protected health information; and
(5)
Health care provider
(b) "Health care provider'' means any person, corporation, facility, or institution either licensed
by this state or otherwise lawfully providing health care services, including, but not limited to, a
physician, hospital, office, clinic, health center or other health care facility, dentist, nurse,
optometrist, pharmacist, podiatrist, physical therapist, or mental health professional, and any
officer, employee, or agent of such provider acting in the course and scope of employment or
agency related to or supportive of health care services.

Legal Language Updates
Comment:
The current law uses an undefined term of “health care services” in order to
define a health care provider. In order to alleviate any ambiguity, and to ensure
consistency of interstate communication capabilities with other organizations,
we suggest using the standard HIPAA definition of a Health care provider.
Section 160 of HIPAA contains the definition of Health care provider.
“Health care provider” has the meaning given such term in section 160.103 of title 45,
Code of Federal Regulations: Provider of services (as defined in section 1861(u) of the
[Social Security] Act, 42 U.S.C. 1395x(u)), a provider of medical or health services (as
defined in section 1861(s) of the Act, 42 U.S.C. 1395x(s)), and any other person or
organization who furnishes, bills, or is paid for health care in the normal course of business.

332-I:3 Use and Disclosure of Protected Health Information; Health Information
Exchange. –
I.
Except as provided in paragraph VI, a health care provider, or a business
associate of a health care provider, or patient, may transmit an individual's protected health
information through the health information organization. Only a health care provider, for
purposes of treatment, may have access to Except as provided in section 332-I:4, protected
health information transmitted through the health information organization., may only be
used and disclosed in accordance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability
Act of 1996 (HIPAA).

Legal Language Updates
Comment:
1. The current language prevents the transmission to, or the receipt of
information from patients that may be required by a variety of clinical
improvement and home monitoring programs.
2. By limiting the transmission of data for treatment purposes only, which is
also an undefined term, providers will be required to build a variety of
alternative conduits for data transmission for care coordination and
accountable care reporting.
3. By allowing the data to be utilized in accordance with HIPAA, organizations
may utilize the data for care coordination purposes, or it may be de-identified
for use by NH Medicaid Manage care plans for population reporting and
management activities that are critical for cost saving programs.
4. These changes retain all the original limitations on use of the data for
marketing and fundraising activities.

Currently, NHHIO does not provide a centralized data repository of patient records for
querying and retrieving functions, but is creating a platform for electronic directed
secure messaging (DSM). However, through the Relationship List Service (RLS) in phase II,
NHHIO providers will be able to see a list of organizations where the patients have some
type of record associated and the date of the last encounter. Providers may then reach
out to the organization through traditional methods associated with the encounter and
request the information to be sent to them. NHHIO will also provide a Healthcare
Provider Directory (HPD) of all participating providers and organizations.

- 47 -
What is the Healthcare Provider Director (HPD) used for?
NHHIO is establishing a payload agnostic platform to allow organizations to transmit any
type of message, file or document that relates to patient treatment. The message is
encrypted and transmitted based on the HPD information available to the HIE. This “To”
and “From” addressing information can be manually embedded into the file name of the
message, ie. FromAddress..ToAddress[##UniqueIdentifier][#Filename], or as an example,
[email protected].[email protected]##20130212#JoeBloggs.pdf
Or, the “To” and “From” information may also be embedded into the C32 CCD , or CDA
document, HL7 or XML message depending on vendor capabilities. The ability to include
this information into a local provider directory in your EHR or other source system, or
not, will help determine our integration methods with each source system.

How does the LAND appliance communicate?
The LAND appliance periodically pings the central site in order to determine if messages are
waiting for retrieval. Communications are outbound only directed to a single IP address
through a single Port on the local firewall. Once messages are identified, they are then
pulled into the LAND, unencrypted, then delivered to destination. Communication between
the participant and the LAND appliance is un-secure.
http://www.nhhio.org/sites/nhhio.org/files/media/NHHIO%20Solution%20Diagram.pdf
Where is the best placement of the LAND appliance: Local Network vs.
DMZ?
Since communication between the LAND appliance and your sources systems is not
encrypted, we recommend the appliance is placed on your network behind your Firewall
which provides continuous security of PHI. Messages are encrypted by the LAND appliance,
and remain encrypted until they are received on the Receiver’s appliance, at which point
they are safely decrypted.
New Hampshire Health Information Organization

- 51 -
How is data in transit secured and encrypted?
Data is sent through Orion HISP, following Direct ( http://www.healthit.gov/policyresearchers-implementers/direct-project ) standards, using TLS version 1 transport protocols
with PKI certificates, encrypted using AES256 algorithm. Encryption/Decryption takes place
within the LAND appliance and messages are not opened or deposited at the central site.
Where is the Central Site?
System is securely hosted by LogicWorks in a hybrid cloud environment,
http://www.logicworks.net/, (SSAE16 certified) with separate database and server
instances for NHHIO protected by Cisco ASA5520 firewalls with redundant communication
ports and full anti-virus and intrusion detection software.
What type of network connectivity is required?
NHHIO relies upon participant’s commercial internet connectivity and does not utilize any
private networks or dedicated circuits.

How do I select an appropriate integration method?
With support and guidance from NHHIO and the Orion teams, each participant will need to
work with their EHR vendor(s) to determine the best integration method based on the
export functions of their system, the ability to include HPD information, and the trigger
events for the release of information such as:
• Medical Summary / Continuity of Care Document (CCD) / (CDA)
• Transfer of Care Summary (TOC)
• Progress / SOAP notes
• Referral requests / Referral letters

HIE 1.0
hie 2.0
• Focused on “the noun”
• Focused on “the verb”
• Trying to solve “market failures”
• Demand-driven -- trying to meet
market needs
• Multi-entity governance, but often
driven by third-party entities
• Strived to solve wide variety of rich
use cases through comprehensive
interoperability
• Complex legal, business, and
technical requirements to support rich
array of use cases
• Tried to tackle policy issues to enable
business practices and technology
solutions
• More tactically focused to meet
immediate interoperability needs
• Led by any organization that has
business need and ability to marshal
financial, technical, and
organizational resources
• Designed to fit within existing legal,
business, and technical constraints –
technology out ahead of policy in
some areas
What is driving this transition?
Limited successes of the prior model
Bottom-up demand -- systems are not interoperable because not enough
customers asked for interoperability
•
Meaningful Use incentives
•
Value-based purchasing
•
Market expectations about standards of care
•
Younger provider expectations about use of technology
•
Consumer expectations about use of technology
Supply-side
•
EHR certification requirements – common denominator important in a
fragmented industry
•
Technology advancements in cloud services, mobile, broadband,
storage, patient-matching capability, etc

What will drive HIE in the future?
MU Stage 1 – get everyone electronic, push transactions that already work (labs,
eRX)
MU Stage 2 – establish new “push” transactions (provider-to-provider)
MU Stage 3 – establish new “query” transactions
MU Stage 4? 5? 6?
Accountable care?

Conclusions
HIE activity is starting to flourish….just not in the way we expected a few years ago
Heterogeneity will be the hallmark of HIE activity in the coming years
There will not be a “National HIE” – but there are already many of them…
Multi-layered HIE modes developing as business practices mature
•
“B2B”-style patterns to move documents around with light centralized coordination –
Direct and Directed Query
•
“Supply-chain” style patterns with deep integration among very closely aligned
entities seeking centralized orchestration for rich applications to support complex
uses
Most state-level HIEs will not survive, and the survivors will be the ones who:
•
Focus on customer needs
•
Tackle the problems that only they can solve
•
Remain flexible to market changes
