Phase I of CMS’s EHR Demonstration project began September 1, 2008. Physicians selected by CMS to participate in this EHR demo project will be eligible to receive incentives totaling up to $58,000 per physician over five years or $290,000 per practice over five years.
CMS’s selected Community Partners are now accepting applications from eligible physicians located in the following regions:
- Pennsylvania – Pittsburgh Area
- Washington D.C.
- Louisiana and
- South Dakota (and select counties in its boardering states)
I have provided links to a CMS-selected Community Partner for each region above. For additional general information about the EHR demonstration project, visit CMS’s Frequently Asked Questions webpage.
Interested physicians must complete and submit an application to a Community Partner for the applicable region no later than November 26, 2008.
