This week Indiana was one of the first 15 states to open their Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs for registration to Medicaid eligible professionals (EPs) and eligible hospitals. EPs and eligible hospitals will be able to receive Medicaid EHR incentive payments after successfully registering and having adopted, implemented, or upgraded certified EHR technology. Eligible professionals can receive up to $63,750 over six years, and eligible hospital payments begin with a $2 million base payment.
“We are extremely pleased to receive federal approval for the launch of Indiana’s EHR Incentive Program,” said Pat Casanova, Director of Indiana’s Office of Medicaid Policy and Planning. “This enhances our ability to assure continued improvements in healthcare quality, efficiency and safety for all Hoosiers.”
By using certified EHR technology, providers and patients can be confident that the electronic health information technology products and systems they use are secure, maintain confidentiality, and can work with other systems to share information.
