M-CEITA was established through a federal grant to help providers in Michigan navigate the complex Electronic Health Record (EHR) marketplace by providing unbiased information and direct assistance. Assistance through M-CEITA is available to practices considering an EHR, in the process of implementing an EHR, or who would like to optimize their current use of an EHR. Our team provides valuable services for all stages of EHR adoption, from planning to Meaningful Use attestation, helping practices leverage this technology to achieve increased levels of quality and safety for patients.
We are facilitated by Altarum Institute, a Michigan-based nonprofit, and funded by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC), with support from The Kresge Foundation.
The subsidized direct assistance offered by M-CEITA specifically targets small, primary care and other underserved settings during their first year of the CMS EHR Incentive Programs. Providers in all care settings at any time can benefit from the additional services brought to you by M-CEITA, such as Meaningful Use Monitoring and Support and Meaningful Use for Specialists.
