ESAC, Inc. has been awarded a contract to continue supporting the electronic Long Term Services and Support (eLTSS) initiative.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) continue to collaborate to support state TEFT Grantees through development of electronic Long Term Services and Supports (e-LTSS) plan standards through an iterative process within the Standards and Interoperability Framework.
The objective of this initiative is to identify, evaluate, validate and pilot a suite of standards for the electronic capture, display, and delivery of health and service information to support TEFT Grantees, service beneficiaries, guardians, caregivers, providers, state agencies, personal health record systems and organizations who participate in Community-Based (CB) Long Term Services and Support (LTSS). This suite of electronic Long Term Services and Support )e-LTSS) standards will be produced through the iterative practices and innovations established by the Office of the National Coordinator’s S&I Framework.
