Delaware Medical Assistance Program and Health Information Technology (HIT)

The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Care Act, more commonly referred to as the HITECH Act, was enacted as part of The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.  Section 4210 establishes an incentive payment program for Medicare and Medicaid providers to encourage the adoption and use of electronic health records.  This program will provide incentive payments to eligible professionals and eligible hospitals as they adopt and demonstrate meaningful use of certified EHR technology.  Eligible professionals may receive up to $63,750 over 6 years and eligible hospitals may receive payments based on a number of factors, beginning with a $2 million base payment.  The Medicaid EHR incentive program is voluntary.  Delaware launched the EHR Provider Incentive Payment program in November 2011.

Providers can register with CMS and apply through the Delaware Medical Assistance Program (DMAP).  Providers who are considering an investment in EHR technology can evaluate their eligibility for the program and their ability to meet the proposed requirements in order to qualify for the incentive payments.  For more information, go to Delaware Medical Assistance Program (DMAP).

If you would like more information on the DMAP Provider Incentive Program for Electronic Health Records please direct your inquiries to Delaware Provider Incentive Payment Team.
