The Oregon Health Authority launched the Oregon Medicaid Meaningful Use Technical Assistance Program (OMMUTAP) in spring 2016. The program was created to help eligible providers adopt and use certified electronic health record (EHR) technology and achieve Meaningful Use.
OHA has contracted with OCHIN to provide outreach and technical assistance to eligible providers through the program. OMMUTAP was developed with input from Oregon’s coordinated care organizations to ensure services meet regional network needs.
The program offers a suite of no-cost services to help certain health care providers who treat Medicaid patients:
- Select the right certified EHR technology for their practice or upgrade their current EHR
- Effectively access and use patient information when and where it is needed, and meet CCO reporting measures
- Assess and minimize EHR-related security risks to their practice
- Achieve Meaningful Use and qualify for financial incentives
