  • Phase 1 - Data from CARE and MBOW will be regularly imported into CMBHS, keeping the current data submission process for LMHAs unchanged.

  • Phase 2 - LMHAs will submit data directly to CMBHS using data-sharing standards developed by Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN), a federal HHS initiative to provide a secure, nationwide, interoperable information infrastructure to connect providers, consumers, and others involved in healthcare.

    Panel of DSHS staff, providers, and vendors is being assembled to develop data-sharing standards for elements not covered by the national standards.
