Welcome to the Alaska 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. As a result of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, beginning in 2011, eligible Medicaid providers are offered financial incentives for the implementation and meaningful use of Health Information Technology (HIT) in the management of patient populations.

To streamline the process in applying for the incentive and provide supportive resources throughout your HIT transition, this web portal centralizes the national, state and regional links for additional program information. It also serves as the portal to access Alaska’s Medical Assistance program State Level Registry (SLR). In support of the Department of Health and Social Services (DHSS) vision to improve access to health care and quality of health care for Alaskans, this site also offers the following:

  • A centralized “one-stop” launching pad of available tools for managing your EHR Incentive Program information
  • Organized information offering real-time feeds of current HIT news and updates from other federal organizations such as CMS Educate yourself today on the benefits of HIT and be a part of transforming the quality, efficiency and safety of healthcare delivery.
