9/13/18 Chapter 300, MHDO Financial Data Submission Requirements

The MHDO Executive Director, Karynlee Harrington, sent the following to Hospital CFO's & Financial Data Submitters.

In 2012 the MHDO Board of Directors took action in response to feedback received from data submitters and end users regarding the operations of the Maine Health Data Organization (MHDO). As a result of the Board action the MHDO has been working on restructuring its internal operations, systems and processes to better serve the needs of our customers – both data submitters and data users. Our vision is to be a data provider to our clients and the public that is:

  • Responsive and timely: clearly communicating to our clients what data are available and managing data release to published timeframes
  • Accurate: ensure consistency and conformity of claims submissions
  • Accessible: providing self‐service applications where possible and removing barriers to data access.
  • Streamlined: building efficient processes for data gathering and release.
  • Secure: protecting the confidentiality of personal health data – electronic threats change and systems must adapt to meet these challenges.

To achieve these goals, the MHDO is building upon its existing systems to take advantage of newer technologies better suited to meet the changing needs of the market.

We have spent the last few years working on our new portal for the submission of claims data that we receive from the health plans and hospital encounter (administrative) data that is received from the hospitals.

We have recently turned our attention to working on the system for how hospital financial data is submitted to the MHDO – Our goal is to streamline and improve the existing data submission process. The MHDO is committed to the active involvement of our hospital financial data submitters throughout the design, development, and deployment process of the new system.

In the next few weeks you will receive a message containing information for a webinar presentation where we will discuss the new data submission system with timelines and what it means to you as a submitter of hospital financial data. In the meantime, please feel free to call or e-mail Debra Dodge at or me with any questions or concerns.
