Please note that these FAQs represent MeHI’s interpretation of the EMRAM requirements to fit Behavioral Health organizations. The A-EMRAM adoption model is intended to serve as a roadmap for Health IT maturity by each Grantee Organization. While the broader functionalities remain the same, many of the details behind each functionality described here are specific to the eQIP Behavioral Health grant program and may disallow achievement of official HIMSS A-EMRAM stages. The guidance provided in this document is not to be used outside of MeHI’s eQIP Behavioral Health grant.
