Notes
Through the NY Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program, Eligible Professionals (EPs) and Eligible Hospitals (EHs) who adopt, implement, or upgrade to Certified EHR Technology (CEHRT), and subsequently become meaningful users of CEHRT, can qualify for multi-year financial incentives. Participation is optional and is limited to Physicians, Dentists, Nurse Practitioners, Certified Nurse Midwives, certain Physician Assistants, Acute Care Hospitals, and Children’s Hospitals. If a provider is not receiving incentive payments under this program, it does not imply that the provider is not meaningfully using EHR technology. On April 24, 2018, CMS announced the renaming of the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program to the Promoting Interoperability Program, to better reflect CMS’s dedication to improving interoperability and patients’ access to health information. It is important to note that the NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program is a CMS Promoting Interoperability Program, but will continue to operate under the current name, the NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.
