CONTACT US 1 DEFINITIONS AHIN (Advanced Health Information Network) Attributed Members (Patient Panel) Attribution AHIN is a web-based portal that provides the Arkansas provider community real-time access to the information needed to efficiently manage a practice. AHIN s functionality includes eligibility, claim information, remittance information, and access to the State PCMH, Episode Reporting and ABCBS PCMH programs. A patient panel is a list of patients assigned (or attributed) to a Primary Care team in a practice. The team is responsible for managing the overall care for the attributed patient panel. Examples of the types of care that the team will be responsible for overseeing include: preventive care, chronic disease management, follow-up from any ED or in-patient hospital visit as well as any acute care needs. The process of aligning our members with a Primary Care Provider based on recent claims data, member selection, and in some cases, demographic considerations. A Primary Care Provider will then manage the patients/members that have been assigned/attributed. Provider participation may include incentive payments to support the population management of the attributed members. 1
