Upgrade of Indiana Medicaid EHR Meaningful Use Portal Complete

UPgrade of Indiana Medicaid EHR Meaningful Use Portal complete

Indiana Medicaid's Electronic Health Records (EHR) Registration and Attestation Portal has undergone systems maintenance to prepare for Year 2 payments for Stage 1 Meaningful Use.

The portal will re-open May 1, 2012, for Medicaid-eligible hospital and provider Adopt, Implement, or Upgrade (AIU) registration. Medicaid-eligible hospital Year 2 attestation will also be available. Medicaid-eligible providers will be able to attest for Year 2 payment incentives (90-day attestation) at a later date. The upgraded portal introduces enhancements such as electronic signature submission and enhanced data matching between state and federal agencies.

Eligible providers and hospitals can continue to register with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Registration and Attestation Portal during this period in preparation for attesting with Indiana in 2012. See the Indiana Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Program page on this site for more details. New user manuals for eligible hospitals and eligible professionals are available on the Manuals page of this site.

Since May 2011, Indiana has distributed more than $60 million to more than 1,000 eligible providers and hospitals that have successfully demonstrated that they met program requirements.
