Welcome to the Missouri State Level Registry (SLR) — Provider Outreach Page

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. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, beginning in 2011, offers eligible Medicaid providers financial incentives for the implementation and meaningful use of Health Information Technology (HIT) in the management of patient populations.

To streamline the process of applying for these incentives, MO HealthNet (Missouri’s Medicaid program) offers this web portal to centralize national, state and regional links and provide resources for your HIT transition, including the following:

  • A centralized “one-stop” launching pad of available tools for managing your MO HealthNet EHR Incentive information,
  • A secure portal to access the MO HealthNet State Level Registry (SLR),
  • Access to real-time feeds of current HIT news and updates from federal organizations including CMS.

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