Meaningful Use

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) EHR Incentive Programs was established in 2009 in an effort to encourage providers and hospitals to adopt, implement and use Electronic Health Records in the daily practice of medicine.  The Alabama Medicaid Agency is responsible for administration of the program and managing the payment process.
