Meaningful Use programs

Direct Assistance for primary care providers

You have likely heard about Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs offering up to $63,750 per provider. Our founding grant has provided us the ability to support 1,486 eligible primary care providers as they adopt, implement and achieve Meaningful Use of EHRs by April 2014. If your practice is willing to put in the work to implement an EHR and comply with state/federal standards to receive these incentives, we are equipped to help you with individualized education, training, tools and additional funding to help you along the way.

ILHIE Direct

The Illinois Health Information Exchange Direct (ILHIE Direct) Secure Messaging Solution is a secure e-mail program designed for physicians across the state. Secure messaging protects sensitive health data sent between providers in compliance with industry regulations such as HIPAA. ILHIE Direct works much the same as traditional e-mail accounts but encrypts messages and attachments so they can be exchanged safely. Best of all, ILHIE Direct is being offered at no cost through June 2013. Let CHITREC help you register and exchange information with other Illinois providers.
