This report presents the results of an environmental scan study requested by the Iowa Department of Human Services (IDHS) and Iowa Medicaid Enterprise (IME) to evaluate the landscape of Iowa’s health information technology (IT), including participation in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Programs (also known as Meaningful Use programs) among three different types of healthcare organizations and providers in Iowa: eligible hospitals, eligible professionals who are not dentists, and eligible professionals who are dentists.
