HIE Adoption - Data Exchange Incentive Program (DEIP)

About the Program

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 EHR interfaces to New York State Qualified Entities (QEs) 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 a QE.  This program is designed to help defray the cost for an organization when connecting to their local QE. 

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.
