Promoting and protecting the health and safety of all Idahoans

Idaho Medicaid Promoting Interoperability (PI) Program (Formally known as the EHR Incentives Program)

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 promotes adoption of EHR technology in documenting patient care.  The legislation allows incentive payments for EPs and EHs as they adopt, implement, upgrade, or demonstrate meaningful use of a CEHRT.
