Incentive Payments for Adoption and Use of Certified EHR Technology

Posted in Agency News by Recovery.gov on October 4, 2011

HHS LogoThe Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) projects that approximately $18 billion will be paid in incentive payments nationwide from 2011-2012 through the Recovery Act’s Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Programs. Healthcare professionals and hospitals who adopt and use certified EHR technology will be eligible to receive these funds.

The Office of National Coordinator for Health IT  has set up Regional Extension Centers across the country to help providers choose and adopt the certified EHR  best suited for their practices. These Regional Extension Centers have also received Recovery Act awards.

Read the full story about the effects of the EHR incentive funds on a small business in Arkansas by visiting the Health and Human Services website.  You can also view the list of certified EHR products and their vendors and developers here.
