    CMS EHR Incentive Programs Name Change

    At the national level, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) has renamed the EHR Incentive Program the Promoting Interoperability (PI) Program for eligible hospitals (EHs), critical access hospitals (CAHs), and eligible professionals (EPs).​
     
    This name change is a part of CMS’s plan to overhaul and streamline the EHR Incentive Programs for hospitals, as well as for the Advancing Care Information performance category of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), which is one track of the Quality Payment Program. This change will move the programs beyond the existing requirements of meaningful use to a new phase of EHR measurement with an increased focus on interoperability and improving patient access to health information.
     
    Please note that this change does not merge or combine the EHR Incentive Programs and MIPS. Maryland Medicaid’s program will remain the Maryland Medicaid Electronic Health Record​ (EHR) Incentive Program, although our program is part of the national PI program. All current user guides, resource documents and language on the Maryland Medicaid EHR Incentive Payment Program website will remain as-is.
     
    For more information about CMS’s decision on renaming the EHR incentive Programs, please visit the CMS website
     
    Created under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the Medicaid Electronic Health Record Incentive Program provides incentive payments to eligible professionals and hospitals to promote adoption of and meaningful use of interoperable health information technology and qualified electronic health records. 
     
    Maryland Medicaid is no longer accepting applications for new Electronic Health Record Incentive Program participants. Program Year 2016 was the last year to begin participation. eMIPP User Guide
