Promoting Interoperability
Promoting Interoperability of a certified Electronic Health Record (EHR) is required to meet Hospital Promoting Interoperability requirements. The Promoting Interoperability is challenging and changing constantly. The Kentucky REC helps healthcare organizations stay on top of these demanding program requirements. We offer support services for hospitals required to report Promoting Interoperability each year.

Until the end of the program, we also offered Promoting Interoperability advisory services for those participating in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program. We maintain an archive of resources for those seeking information about this program.

Promoting Interoperability—Hospitals

Kentucky REC provides Eligible Hospitals (EHs) and Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) with efficient and effective Promoting Interoperability advisory services to guide them through the multifaceted environment unique to health information technology.

Promoting Interoperability—Providers

During the lifetime of the Promoting Interoperability Program, Kentucky REC helped providers make progress toward Promoting Interoperability in the most efficient and effective way, which translated into lower costs of implementation, assurance of maximum reimbursements, and protection against penalties and costly audits. We are now in the retention of documentation period, with end year 2027.
