Mackinaw Trail Pediatrics A rural pediatric practice was struggling with the Medicaid registration process and was unable to seek M-CEITA services due to financial constraints. When the group found out that services were available due to the CIPA/MAG partnership with M-CEITA, they were eager to lean on the guidance of M-CEITA to successfully register all of their providers in the Medicaid incentive program. The practice is grateful for the joint efforts that afforded this opportunity and is now on track to receive their first year reimbursement with their certified EHR product.
Sheridan Community Hospital Although Sheridan Community Hospital's ambulatory practices had originally decided not to pursue the EHR incentive program-more technology seemed too big of a hurdle-Sheridan's leaders heard an M-CEITA presentation about how to pursue Meaningful Use through the modular approach. Now Sheridan Community Hospital's ambulatory practices are partnering with M-CEITA to qualify and attest for the Meaningful Use program.
Alcona Health Center MCEITA has assisted them in the registration process helping them to be one of the first FQHC's in the state to get fully registered for the Medicaid incentives. We have been working side by side to work out inefficiencies they have discovered and are currently setting the path for Meaningful Use to be reached this fall.

Bayview Family Practice & Baraga County Medical Practice Our engagement with Bayview Family Practice & Baraga County Medical Practice began with a gap analysis of their current implementation of CPSI and Meaningful Use/PCMH EHR related standards. The practices were not on the ONC-ATCB certified version of CPSI, so the project plan for this practice included upgrading to the certified version and implementing the workflow changes necessary to incorporate the MU and PCMH EHR related measures. M-CEITA is currently working with the practice on implementing Cielo as their patient registry as part of our gap analysis identified several deficiencies in the patient registry functionality of CPSI.
