Michigan Center for Effective IT Adoption
Medicaid providers in Michigan were lagging behind other states in adopting electronic health record systems, so the state enlisted Altarum to accelerate their progress through our Michigan Center for Effective IT Adoption (M-CEITA) initiative, a CMS and privately-funded program that helps providers comply with Meaningful Use and increase operational quality, efficiency, and security.
Through this program, Altarum gave direct support to providers adopting and upgrading their certified electronic health record technology. We helped practices leverage technology to actively manage patient populations, support effective care delivery, enhance business operations, facilitate interoperability and information exchange, and improve health outcomes. We also helped providers apply for Medicaid incentive payments, which were available through 2021.
Our services have helped more than 6,000 providers in more than 500 practices successfully adopt certified electronic health record technology. These services have been used by providers representing 65 different specialties working on more than 60 different technology systems.
