Horizon Data Submission Template

The Horizon Data Submission Template for Practitioners is another option you can use to make updates to your provider data in our systems. This new process provides a faster turnaround so your updated information is displayed on our Doctor & Hospital Finder.

Getting Started with the Horizon Data Submission Template

Our reply to your email will have #Secure# added to the front of the subject line.

  1. Request a blank template
    You will need a blank template to make changes to your data.

  2. Establish a secure (encrypted) connection with us
    The email you will receive back from Horizon will be using Horizon's Secure Blue encryption protocol which has created a secure connection between Horizon and you with the reply email.

    • Secure Blue is Horizon's encryption protocol which ensures the data included in the email cannot be read by anyone other than those on the distribution list of the email.

    • To maintain the secure connection, please send us your completed template by replying to the email that included the blank template.

    • The Secure Blue Connection will expire after 10 days of Horizon sending you the template.

    • If you reply after the 10 days, you will need to request another template to establish a new secure connection or use one of the other acceptable secure (encrypted) channels: Transport Layer Security (TLS), Zix.

  3. Enter your data in the template
    You will need to input your data for all the mandatory fields and provide the required supporting documentation before you send us back the template.

  4. Include the required supporting documentation
    Please include the supplemental documentation noted along with your data submission template so we can make the following types of changes/updates to your demographic information.
