CRISP Proposes Amendments to the Payer Participation Agreement

The circumstances, laws, and policies which pertain to health information exchange are changing significantly. Our current Participation Agreement with payers does not fully reflect those changes.

CRISP is proposing to materially revise several areas of the Payor Participation Agreement, to better align it with the agreement used with other participants and to incorporate necessary changes related to technology updates and changes in HIE regulations. These changes are outlined in the accompanying memo. The memo and updated agreement should be reviewed by both participant legal counsel and privacy and security officers. Please note this participation agreement only pertains to payer participants. A similar process for the other CRISP participation agreement was performed and completed earlier this year.

There will be a 30 day period following the posting of the agreement where you are free to provide comments to CRISP. Comments are due by 5 p.m. on September 20th, 2021. Please email Adrienne Ellis, Advisor to CRISP at with any potential comments you may have. Click the buttons below to download the full Participation Agreement and Memo of Changes.

All comments are due by 5 p.m. on September 20th, 2021. In addition, CRISP will be hosting a virtual meeting to answer questions and accept oral comments on September 7th, 2021, from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. You can register for the meeting by emailing Adrienne Ellis, Advisor to CRISP at
