A Message to the CHITREC Community Regarding Our COVID-19 Actions

Participating in the Illinois Prescription Monitoring Program Can Help You Earn EHR Incentive Payments

To qualify for payment from the Illinois Medicaid EHR Incentive Program – formerly “Meaningful Use” and recently renamed “Promoting Interoperability (Medicaid)” – you must engage with one or more specialized registries. In 2018, there are no exclusions from public health reporting for Stage 2, Objective 10, Measure 3.

One registry option is the Illinois Prescription Monitoring Program (ILPMP).

All EHR Incentive Program participants are eligible for ILPMP, regardless of prescribing privileges or habits. ILPMP is now accepting registrations of intent to connect directly with your certified EHR, a requirement for meeting this measure.

Ready to register?

Register to use ILPMP at the MURS website. Once you have successfully registered, you will receive a confirmation email as evidence. When your organization comes up in the queue, an invitation to begin onboarding will be sent to the individual you designate as your technical contact.

Be sure to fully integrate with your certified EHR by December 31, 2018, to continue using ILPMP for the specialized registry measure in future years.
