[EHR Incentive Programs] Can two separate practices with two different Tax Identification Numbers (TINs) purchase a single certified electronic health record (EHR) system and share it in order to participate in the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs?

Yes. Incentive payments are made based on the demonstration of meaningful use by individual eligible professionals (EPs). Certified EHR technology will track each EP's performance on the individual meaningful use objectives. Multiple practices that do not share a business affiliation could use the same certified EHR technology for their respective EPs.
