We recommend that data only reporting agencies to attend the first two webinars and then assess which data reporting option within IBHRS is the best fit for you. Then they can pick and choose the rest based on that reporting method. We are recording all webinars, so if agencies miss one or want to re-assess your options, you can always catch up on them. We recommend that all providers consult with your Electronic Health Record (EHR) and invite their rep for you to these meetings too.

We are encouraging all providers to strongly consider the option by which your EHR reports directly to IBHRS as we're striving to make that as straightforward and easy as possible. But we also know that won't work for all and are supporting an onscreen data entry process too. We will cover both options in the first two webinars and then in greater detail in multiple webinars over the first half of 2021.

The H835 response files can be downloaded by providers, which contain the adjudication actions (i.e., approved, denied, pended).  For grant management, providers would continue to use the voucher management functionality within IBHRS.
