Personal Health Records for Long-term Services and Supports Demo
A Minnesota Personal Health Record Demonstration Project
Minnesota’s Personal Health Record for Long Term Services and Supports Demonstration is a pilot project that tests the concept of a personal health record (PHR) that's designed for people receiving long term services ans supports (LTSS). It is a four-year TEFT planning and demonstration grant awarded to DHS by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for Testing Experience and Functional Tools (TEFT) in community-based long-term services and supports from April 1, 2014 through March 31, 2018. Minnesota is currently pursuing a No Cost Extension for CMS, which would allow the project to continue through March 31, 2019 if approved.
There are currently two community collaboratives testing out the PHR for LTSS, which are the Otter Tail County collaborative and the Southern Prairie collaborative. More information about these community collaboratives and the TEFT project can be found below.
