New York Medicaid Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Program

Through the NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, eligible professionals (EPs) and eligible hospitals (EHs) in New York who adopt, implement, or upgrade certified EHR technology (CEHRT), and subsequently become meaningful users of CEHRT, can qualify for financial incentives.

CMS is dedicated to improving interoperability and patients´ access to health information. On April 24, 2018, to better reflect this focus, CMS announced the renaming of the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program to the Promoting Interoperability Program. It is important to note that the NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program is a part of the CMS Promoting Interoperability Program, but will continue to operate under the current name – NY Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.
