Xerox to Implement Hawaii Web-Based EHR Info Tool

Xerox_LogoXerox has won a $54 million contract to manage and implement a web-based tool for Hawaii intended to keep track of healthcare providers that use electronic health records.

The three-year contract with three one-year options includes provisions to serve as the state’s Medicaid fiscal agent, Xerox said Tuesday.

Hawaii is targeting more than 50 providers to sign on to its State Level Registry in the program’s first year, the company said.

This contract with Hawaii expands Xerox’s SLR operation to nine states, plus Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.

Xerox uses a software-as-a-service cloud computing model for its SLR and the company also directly links to the National Level Registry, which aims to synchronize payment details to eliminate duplication.

According to the company, it has disbursed a total of $1.7 billion in SLR-related federal incentives since the program began.
