About the Medicaid Promoting Interoperability Program
This program provides incentives and support to help Medicaid providers demonstrate meaningful use of certified EHR systems. The New Jersey Innovation Institutes' Medicaid Provider Program (MPP) expansion is being funded through a grant from the New Jersey Department of Human Services, Division of Medical Assistance and Health Services that was awarded in October 2017.
The MPP funds up to 1,250 providers in achieving the Medicaid Promoting Interoperability Program. The program builds upon an initial grant from the Office of National Coordinator that was awarded to New Jersey Innovation Institute (formerly NJ-HITECH) in 2010, from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
