eDurable Medical Equipment (DME)
Under Connecticut Statute that stemmed from the 2014 Connecticut Legislative session, Bill No. 5597 ruling requires that electronic submission of prescription orders for eDurable Medical Equipment (DME) must be accepted by the Department of Social Services (DSS) under the medical assistance program. Connecticut providers and practitioners require the ability to submit DME orders electronically and in a standard way using Direct secure messaging.
The project will ensure that all Connecticut providers and practitioners have access to deliver DME orders electronically via Direct secure message transport (the Direct standard). Secure Exchange Solutions (SES) will provide a secure, HIPAA compliant service for the transmission of electronic orders of Medical Devices/Supplies (MEDS). CMAP Practitioners will electronically sign and transmit the orders that are accepted by the Department of Social Services under the Medical Assistance Program.
