Medicaid EHR Incentive Program

Oregon’s Medicaid EHR Incentive Program offers eligible providers and hospitals financial incentives to adopt, implement or upgrade to certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) technology and become meaningful users of the EHR technology. EHRs can help improve the quality and coordination of care across settings and provide patients with immediate access to their complete and secure health records.

Program Year 2016 Deadline Extended for EPs

CMS approved our request to extend the deadline for eligible professionals to attest for program year 2016 from March 31, 2017 to May 31, 2017.  This applies to eligible professionals attesting to adopt, implement, or upgrade (AIU) or meaningful use (MU) for program year 2016.  The deadline for Oregon eligible hospitals is still March 31, 2017.

Program Year 2016 Attestation Deadlines:

  • Eligible Hospitals: March 31, 2017
