One of the solutions being looked at by the HCA is the requirement for all dental providers to use the NEA system. The decision will be made when feedback from ABCD providers as well as Apple Health dental providers is received by the HCA.
The secure, electronic system is available for roughly $34 per month. It will enable transmission and retrieval of requested electronic records, documentation and images in minutes vs. hours or days through the U.S. mail system.
HCA's goal is to aid in the increased efficiency and affordability of providers.
