The TI 2.0 application will be available via AHCCCS Online beginning summer of 2023. Before the application becomes available, we encourage prospective participants to complete the checklist below.
- Review TI 2.0 eligibility criteria and prepare required documentation,
- Confirm that clinics under your organization’s TIN have an EHR system capable of bi-directional data exchange with the HIE (Contexture),
- Confirm that you have an AHCCCS Online Account by checking access to the TI Portal,
- Complete the Provider Interest Form, and
- Sign up for the Newsletter to be notified when the portal is available and other important updates.
Contexture recently announced that they will be adopting a new platform in 2025. The TI 2.0 Program applicants will be required to meet one of the following:
- Option 1: If your organization already has an EHR system capable of bi-directional exchange of a core data set with Contexture:
- Applicants must upload a signed scope of work, dated no later than 9/30/2023, to connect the system to Contexture's new HIE platform once available.
- Option 2: If your organization does not have an EHR system capable of bi-directional exchange of a core data set with Contexture:
- Applicants must upload a commitment letter, signed by the organization's Chief Executive Officer or individual in an equivalent position as of 9/30/2023, that identifies the EHR system and the intent to connect to Contexture's new HIE platform once available.
The TI 2.0 application portal will only be visible to individuals who have an AHCCCS Online account. Prior to beginning the application process, applicants need to confirm that they have an AHCCCS Online account with access to the TI Portal. TI Portal access must be granted by Master Account holders.
- If you do not have an AHCCCS Online account, you will need to create an account. Please see the different types of accounts that can be created (Master account or Individual account descriptions). Determine which type of account is needed for your organization. If the person submitting the application does not see “Targeted Investments” on the left hand side menu, the Master Account holder will need to authorize TI Portal access for the Individual Account by navigating to the “User Authorization” section and then selecting your account and clicking the “Update Authorization” button.
- If you need to create an Individual Account, then you will need the Master Account holder from your organization to activate your access to the TI portal. Once the Individual Account is created successfully, you can identify the organization’s Master Account holder by clicking on the “User Account” link located on the lower left hand side of the webpage. The Master Account details will be under the section labeled “Master Accounts In Organization.”
- If you need to create a Master Account for your organization, then you will need to create an account prior to applying for the TI Program (see the process linked here). Establishing the Master Account can take up to 30 days, so it’s important that you complete it well in advance of the TI 2.0 application deadline.
- Caution for those that already have an AHCCCS Online account, please note that Master Accounts are locked after 90 days of inactivity; Individual Accounts are deleted after 120 days of inactivity. If there are no active Master Accounts or User Accounts to promote, applicants must register for a new AHCCCS Online account at least a month prior to the application deadline to receive the authentication code via postal mail.
