Article 28 Nursing Homes to participate in SHIN-NY dataset by March 9th, 2018.

The Statewide Health Information Network for New York (SHIN-NY) regulation was adopted through NYSDOH that article 28 Nursing Homes have until March 9th, 2018 to become participants of a Qualified Entity (QE). To help defray the costs of this regulation 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 pre-defined set of data elements to their local QE (see below). The New York eHealth Collaborative (NYeC) is coordinating the rollout of the program and the incentive payments on behalf of the DOH. Limited funding is available and this program is operated on a first-come, first-served basis. See attached for full details.
