18 early EHR adopters in Georgia net $6.4M in grants
Eighteen Georgia healthcare providers are the first in the state to receive payments from the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program being administered by the Georgia Department of Community Health (DCH) Office of Health IT.

Since the program’s launch on Sept. 5, incentive payments of $6.4 million have gone out to six hospitals and 12 healthcare professionals across the state who were among the first to qualify, according to the Atlanta-based DCH.

Georgia’s Medicaid EHR Incentive Program is open to eligible Medicaid professionals (physicians, nurse practitioners, certified nurse-midwives and dentists) and eligible hospitals (acute care hospitals, critical access hospitals and children’s hospitals).
