North Carolina Medicaid requiring Electronic Medical Records

I recently learned that North Carolina Division of Medical Assistance will, as of June 1, 2019, require all dental offices that file NC Medicaid to have electronic medical records in place.  Roughly 25-30% of our patients are on NC medicaid. I spoke with a representative a few weeks ago at Care Stream.  I saw on the website that CS indicated they had no current plans to become EMR compliant.  I was then redirected to a secondary software called Amazing Charts.  I was told then that this was the only option for EMR in the CS family.  

Has anyone else run into this situation.  Best I can understand, we have 3 choices, run 2 separate programs at one time, stop seeing all medicaid patients, or switch to another dental software provider.  This problem is approaching rapidly, I wanted to see if anyone else has come up with a solution.
