The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (Agency) announced today that Florida is the first state to launch a Medicaid claims-based electronic health record portal for providers. The Florida Medicaid Health Information Network powered by Availity is available through a common portal where similar records from other payers may also be accessed. This will allow health care providers treating Medicaid recipients to access up to 18 months of Medicaid claims history, helping them make better-informed decisions about their patients. The network was made possible through an innovative agreement with Jacksonville-based Availity, LLC. The portal is free to Floridaâ€™s Medicaid providers and was created without cost to Floridaâ€™s taxpayers.
