The New York State Department of Health (DOH), with support from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), has established the Data Exchange Incentive Program (DEIP) to increase Health Information Exchange (HIE) adoption across the state for Medicaid providers.

Participating organizations are incentivized to contribute a pre-defined set of data elements to the SHIN-NY through a QE. This program is designed to help defray the cost for an organization when connecting to their local QE. 

Still not connected? New York eHealth Collaborative is coordinating the rollout of the program and the incentive payments on behalf of the State Department of Health. Limited funding is still available.

Eligible practices may receive up to $13,000 in incentives to offset the cost and efforts of health information exchange adoption. In order to receive funding, all milestones must be completed by September 30, 2020 as long as funding is not exhausted before this time.

To be eligible for enrollment in DEIP, an organization must:

  • Have at least one provider that accepts Medicaid (Fee-For-Service, Medicaid Managed Care, or HARP); AND
  • Have at least one provider that has attested to and been paid under Medicare or Medicaid MU (any year, any stage)

You can learn more about DEIP here or you can contact your local Qualified Entity (QE) to get started.
