Data Exchange Incentive Program (DEIP) Webinar Offered

Lisa Volk and Nancy Leveille in Clinical & Quality

The New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH), with support from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), has established the Data Exchange Incentive Program (DEIP) to increase HIE adoption across the state. Building Electronic Health Record (EHR) interfaces to New York State Qualified Entities (QEs) will increase the quantity and quality of data in the Statewide Health Information Network for New York (SHIN-NY) and build value for providers and patients at the point of care. This program is designed to help defray the cost for an organization when connecting to their local QE. Organizations participating in DEIP are incentivized to contribute a predefined set of data elements to their local QE. Limited funding is available and this program is operated on a first-come, first-served basis. See the attached link and slides for more information from the DEIP webinar that was offered on 2/2/17.
