Aloha! Welcome to the Hawaii Medicaid Promoting Interoperability (PI) Program

As the healthcare landscape continues to modernize, recent legislation was passed to encourage the adoption of Electronic Healthcare Record (EHR) technology in documenting patient care. As a result of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, beginning in 2011, eligible Medicaid providers are offered financial incentives for the implementation and meaningful use of Health Information Technology (HIT) in the management of patient populations.

To streamline the process in applying for the incentive and provide supportive resources throughout your HIT transition, this web portal centralizes the national, state and regional links for additional program information. It also serves as the portal to access Hawaii’s Medicaid Promoting Interoperability (PI) Program. This site also offers the following:

  • A centralized “one-stop” launching pad of available tools for managing your Medicaid Promoting Interoperability (PI) Program information
  • Organized information offering real-time feeds of current HIT news and updates from other federal organizations such as CMS

Educate yourself today on the benefits of HIT and be a part of transforming the quality, efficiency and safety of healthcare delivery.

The survey is a part of Hawai`i’s final State Medicaid Health IT Plan (SMHP) update. Input from healthcare providers is needed to better understand the current health care technology landscape, illustrate Hawai`i’s progress of Electronic Health Record (EHR) adoption since the inception of the Promoting Interoperability Program to today, and identify areas of opportunity to ensure continued progress toward statewide and national interoperability.
