NYS Program Helps to Subsidize Cost of Connecting to Regional Health Information Exchange
New York State now has a program to provide medical practices with financial assistance to connect to their local Regional Health Information Exchange (RHIO). The Data Exchange Incentive Program (DEIP) was established by the NYS Department of Health to provide health care providers with up to $13,000 to help offset the costs of connecting to the local RHIO. It was established in response to the concerns expressed by many health professionals to reduce the sometimes exorbitant costs imposed by EHR vendors in connecting to local RHIOs.
