The purpose of this site is to provide an online community and repository for State Medicaid agencies to communicate, collaborate and innovate in the successful implementation of the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program.
Since the Stage 2 Final Rule was released there have been a number of changes to
the meaningful use (MU) objectives and measures. To support state EHR incentive
programs and their stakeholders in understanding these changes a new MU stage comparison
tool has been developed. The tool highlights how the MU objectives have evolved
from stage 2 to modified stage 2 to stage 3. In addition to describing the MU requirement
changes, a timeline is presented that includes key dates and deadlines associated
with the MU stages and associated program years.

As states progress in their implementation of Meaningful Use stages, we are pleased
to announce that the State Overview map below has been updated to depict more detailed
implementation statuses. This revised map drills down into the different stages
of implementation for states' Medicaid EHR Incentive Payment systems.
The stages depicted below include: Not Launched, AIU Paid, Stage 1 2013 - approved,
Stage 2 - approved, MU Paid, Stage 1 2013 - implemented, Stage 2 - implemented.
An approved status indicates that the state has CMS approval for screen changes
for a particular MU stage. An implemented status indicates the state has implemented
changes for that particular MU stage.
