3 I. Introduction This Request for Proposal (RFP) is issued by the Fund for Public Health in New York, Inc. (FPHNY), on behalf of the New York City Regional Electronic Adoption Center for Health (NYC REACH). NYC REACH is a program within the Primary Care Information Project (PCIP) in the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC DOHMH). FPHNY is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that exists for the purpose of soliciting, administering, and receiving funds and using such funds to assist the NYC DOHMH in fulfilling its mission to implement programs that address public health needs. NYC REACH is a health information technology (HIT) Regional Extension Center (REC) for the geographic region of New York City, as designated by the United States Department of Health and Human Services (USD HHS) Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC). NYC REACH s mission is to support and serve healthcare providers as they adopt and use HIT. A. HEAL 22 (Behavioral Health) Program Overview In June 2012, the New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) made funding available to New York State s two federally established RECs, NYC REACH and New York ehealth Collaborative (NYeC), to facilitate the adoption and use of HIT by behavioral health providers. This funding is part of the Healthcare Efficiency and Affordability Law and represents the 22nd scope (HEAL 22). In order to accomplish the objective of HEAL 22, NYC REACH and NYeC are facilitating technical assistance for behavioral health providers affiliated with Medicaid Health Homes. Beneficiaries of this initiative include individuals employed in certain behavioral health capacities including, but not limited to: Case Managers Case Coordinators Transitional Care Coordinators Certified Substance Abuse Counselors Social Workers Psychologists Therapists Counselors 3 Psychiatrists Physicians Nurse Practitioner Registered Nurse Physician Assistant The expansion of health information systems and technology and health information exchange (HIE) will allow behavioral health providers to better integrate care across settings and improve the quality and costs of care for Medicaid s most vulnerable and severely ill recipients. B. Meaningful Use (Primary Care and Specialist) Program Overview NYC REACH guides priority primary care providers (PPCP) through electronic health record (EHR) implementation to meet the federal Meaningful Use (MU) requirements and assists in the adoption, implementation, and upgrade (AIU) of electronic health records for improving health care and achieving Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) MU Stage One. PPCPs served by NYC REACH cross a variety of sites including community health centers, hospitals, outpatient clinics, small practices, correctional facilities, and homeless mobile vans. Separately, CMS has authorized funding to expand NY State s administration, oversight, and enhancement of Medicaid incentive programs. With these funds, NYC REACH is administering the Medicaid Specialist Program (MSP). MSP extends NYC REACH services to PPCPs not covered by existing federal funding, which was initially reserved for sites limited to ten or fewer PPCPs, and to specialists who are eligible for the Medicaid MU incentives offered by the CMS New York Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.

4 II. RFP Purpose The purpose of this RFP is to identify organizations best qualified to provide Implementation Agent services on behalf of NYC REACH. The primary goal of this RFP is to recruit Implementation Agents with expertise in providing HIT implementation services within behavioral health settings for NYC REACH s HEAL 22 program.

Implementation Agents identified through this RFP may work on behalf of one or both of the following NYC REACH programs to advance the use of HIT in New York City-based healthcare settings.
