This program will provide specifics on what you need to participate in the incentive programs, including: 

  • Who is eligible.
  • How much the incentives are and how they are calculated.
  • What you need to do to get started.
  • When the program begins and other major milestones regarding participation and payment.
  • How to report on meaningful use measures.
  • Where to find helpful resources.
