NYeC and NYCREACH RECs Offers New Medicaid Specialists Program to Support EHR Adoption

A new program to service and support Medicaid specialists in the adoption, implementation, and use of EHRs across New York State is being launched by the New York eHealth Collaborative Regional Extension Center (NYeC REC). The Medicaid Specialists Program will assist providers in qualifying for up to $63,000 of incentive payments from CMS, upon demonstrating their commitment to improving patient care.

Providers previously ineligible to receive support from the REC for earlier Meaningful Use initiatives are encouraged to enroll. Specialists and some primary care providers who may have previously been referred to as being ‘out-of-scope’ in the original ONC Meaningful Use Incentive Programs will be supported by this program.

Find out more about eligibility and conditions of participation at http://nyehealth.org/medicaid-specialists/.
To learn if you qualify for the Medicaid Specialists Program and to sign up, please contact: Peggy Frizzell, HIT Implementation Project Manager for NYeC at pfrizzell@nyehealth.org, or by phone at (646) 619-6562.

If you practice in NYC go to http://www.nycreach.org/medicaidspecialist to find out if you or a specialist at your practice is eligible.
