HIT and PI

The Office of Primary Care and Rural Health collects and disseminates information about Health Information Technology (HIT) and Electronic Health Records (EHR) using the Medicare and Medicaid Promoting Interoperability Programs (PI). 

We assist healthcare facilities in serving the underserved by achieving meaningful use and obtaining incentives from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) with links to news, tools, and resources from CMS, the Office of Rural Health Policy, the Office of the National Coordinator, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), and the Rural Health Resource Center.

PI and Meaningful Use Training

Region D of the Community College Consortium to Educate Health Information Technology Professionals is offering PI Programs and Meaningful Use training for rural health clinics, federally qualified health centers, critical access hospitals and rural hospitals with 49 or fewer beds.

Interested parties can view curriculum details and contact Ashleigh Walker, MAEd, RHIA, CCS-P via email for more information.

Transition to ICD-10

CMS provides two free International Classification of DIseases (ICD-10) video lectures and an expert article to assist physicians and health care providers in transitioning to ICD-10. Continuing medical education (CME) credits are available for physicians who complete the module, and anyone who completes the module will receive a certificate of completion.

See the CMS newsletter for more information.

Additionally, an ICD-10 resource toolkit is available.
