CalHIPSO Helps California Physicians Receive $7M in Meaningful Use Incentives

Incentive payments totaling more than $7 million are being sent to hundreds of California physicians for completing the first steps toward achieving meaningful use of electronic health records, according to a report by the California Health Information Partnership and Services Organization.

The incentive payments recognize that the medical practices have completed the "adopt, upgrade or implementation" process of EHRs. This means that providers have demonstrated that they have acquired, purchased or secured access to; installed or commenced utilization of; or upgraded to certified EHR technology in order to qualify for incentive payments, according to the report.

CalHIPSO is a federally designated organization established to help California physicians achieve meaningful use with EHR technology. Providers who sign up to receive subsidized services through CalHIPSO receive assistance with demonstrating meaningful use in order to begin receiving federal incentive payments.
