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.

Advanced Primary Care (APC)

The Advanced Primary Care (APC) initiative is a part of New York’s ongoing work to transform healthcare delivery and shift towards value-based care. Focused on small and medium practices who are struggling to navigate the changing landscape, New York eHealth Collaborative's (NYeC) APC practice transformation services help practices deliver high-quality, coordinated care, earn payment incentives, and prepare to thrive under value-based payment arrangements.

Modeled after national programs such as Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), practices enrolled in the APC program will receive up to two years of free technical assistance and support from NYeC to prepare for value-based payment arrangements.

Practices with sites that provide primary care services including internal medicine, family, and pediatrics practices are eligible to participate in APC. Practices currently receiving federally-funded transformation technical assistance (e.g. TCPI, DSRIP-supported PCMH) are not eligible to participate.
Advanced credit is available for practices who have completed federally-funded transformation (e.g. TCPI, DSRIP-supported PCMH, MU).
NYeC will support practices in Western New York, Westchester, Rockland, New York City, and Long Island. Space is limited and practices will be supported on a first-come, first-served basis. Sign up today to ensure your spot.
