How do I meet Medicaid Meaningful Use Modified Stage 2 Objective 10: Public Health - Immunization Registry Data Submission?

Providers who administer vaccines to patients ages 0-6

An Eligible Professional (EP) who routinely administers immunizations to children ages 0-6 as part of the patient's medical home and is mandated to report to CIRTS is required to attest to the immunization registry public health reporting option in order to meet Meaningful Use.

These EPs can satisfy the Testing and Validation definition of active engagement for immunization reporting by submitting test immunization data in the MUST Portal and generating a MUST Portal Certificate during the 2016 EHR reporting period. The Certificate must be uploaded into the DSS Medicaid MAPIR Attestation System for each EP completing an attestation. One MUST Portal Certificate can be utilized per practice group if the Certificate is completed during each individual EPs EHR Reporting Period.

Eligible Professionals who do not routinely administer immunizations to children ages 0-6 and are NOT required to report immunizations to the Department of Public Health CIRTS are to claim an exclusion from the measure based upon the criteria: "Does not administer any immunizations to any of the populations for which data is collected by his or her jurisdiction's immunization registry during the EHR Reporting Period." 42 CFR § 495.22 (e)(10)(ii)(C)(1)(iii).

Providers who administer vaccines to patients ages 7+

Providers participating in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program (Meaningful Use) will be able to claim an exclusion to the immunization registry data submission measure for Modified Stage 2 Objective 10: Public Health - Immunization Registry Data Submission.
