Connectivity Criteria

Connectivity Criteria for VT Health Information ExchangeDuring the 2013 Vermont legislative session, Act 79 was enacted, amending VSA § 9352 and empowering VITL to “establish criteria for creating or maintaining connectivity to the state’s health information exchange network” (Vermont Statutes Annotated).

On February 6, 2014, the Green Mountain Care Board approved the Vermont Health Information Exchange Connectivity Criteria. These criteria provide an incremental connectivity approach to the VHIE, which is consistent with VITL ‘s architecture and aligns with the CMS EHR Meaningful Use Incentive Program.

As mandated by statute, VITL submitted updates to the Connectivity Criteria to the Green Mountain Care Board during March, 2015.
