The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced that Medicare EHR Incentive Payments totaling $75 million have been issued to over 280 providers who signed up for the program in the first two weeks.
Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs are being implemented on a State by State basis. Since January 2011, fifteen States have initiated their Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs and to date, over $83 million in incentive payments has been made to qualified Medicaid providers.
“Through the EHR incentive programs, we are helping eligible providers invest in their technology infrastructure,” said Farzad Mostashari, MD, ScM., National Coordinator for Health Information Technology. “But this isn’t just about technology. The goal is better and safer health care, and that means it’s about patients — about their health care and protection of their information.”
