Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Kentucky Health

with connecting to KHIE.
The Provider Assistance Program was created to help Pharmacies, EPs, EHs
and CAHs in rural areas of the state to mitigate the challenges associated
with interoperability. The objective is to relieve a degree of the
financial burden a health care facility experiences which hinders engagement
