Data Exchange Incentive Program (DEIP)
The New York State Department of Health (DOH), with support from Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), has established the Data Exchange Incentive Program (DEIP) to increase HIE adoption across the State for Medicaid providers.
Building an EHR interface connection to HealthlinkNY will increase the quantity of data in the Statewide Health Information Network for New York (SHIN-NY) and build value for the providers and patients at the point of care. Participating organizations are incentivized to contribute a pre-defined set of data elements to the SHIN-NY through HealthlinkNY. This program is designed to help defray the cost for an organization when connecting to HealthlinkNY.
New York eHealth Collaborative is coordinating the rollout of the program and the incentive payments on behalf of the State Department of Health. Limited funding is available, and this program is operated on a first-come, first-served basis. To learn more about the program and see if your organization is eligible please click here
