It is called ARRA (American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.) It is a payment incentive program for providers who are using EHR (electronic health records) or EMR (electronic medical records) in an effort to encourage the use of EHR/EMR to improve health outcomes of Arkansas residents. Arkansas Incentive Payment Project
The program will have specific criteria each provider must meet as defined as “meaningful use of EHR/EMR.” These criteria are still being defined but an example may be: At least 80% of all unique patients seen by an eligible provider or admitted to the eligible hospital have demographics recorded as structured data. At least 50% of all clinical lab tests ordered whose results are in a positive/negative or numerical format are incorporated in certified (EHR) technology structured data. Arkansas Incentive Payment Project
HP is responsible for processing the payments for the Arkansas Incentive Payment Project. Providers must be eligible for this incentive program. An application will be required. o Workshops will be scheduled accordingly.
