MITS Implementation: 93% of CATT users certified by ODJFS for MITS billing
As of June 28th, 93% of Catt organizations have achieved ODJFS certification to begin sending production MITS files on July 1st. This represents 30 trading partners for over 44 agencies hosting thousands of Ohio behavioral health clinicians. ProComp salutes these organizations for getting their Trading Partner agreements approved early, quickly registering their MITS NPIs with ODMH/ODADAS and working diligently with ProComp support staff to submit their three test files with over 90% clean claims.ProComp account managers will be installing the Catt Stage 2 production MITS AR engine during the first two weeks of July and scheduling web conferences to discuss various different options for multipayor billing strategies and workflows in the MITS era.
MITS Webinars: Series begin July 9
Training webinars for the Catt MITS update package begin the second week of July. A repeating series of two webinars will be offered demonstrating the basic concepts and procedures surrounding the various Catt EDI billing interfaces with the new ODJFS MITS portal. MITS 101 will cover ANSI-837 billing files and ANSI-270/271 Medicaid Eligibility Inquiry/Response files. The second webinar, MITS 201, will cover posting MITS TPL claims and processing MITS ERA Files (ANSI-835). Each webinar will be two hours in length and limited to 10 registrants in order to allow sufficient time for questions and clarifications.

EHR Implementation: Initial ARRA Incentive Funds Total $1,100,000 for CATT Users
The 11 ProComp client agencies who have purchased the ONC-ATCB certified Catt EHR product thus far employ a total of 51 "EP" physicians, PAs and APNs making these organizations eligible for almost 1.1 million dollars in first year ARRA funds under the Medicaid Incentive program. Implementing the various areas of EHR functionality such as ePrescribe, electronic lab results and Catt's "personal health portal" will enable these agencies to achieve "meaningful use" targets making them eligible for another 2.1 million dollars of incentive funds over each organization's five year eligibility period. In August, ProComp will begin a series of day-long workshops as well as two hour webinars focused upon the mechanics of implementing the different EHR components efficiently within an organization's intake, assessment and client workflow routines.
