2017 Medicaid Meaningful Use Stage 2 Objective 10: Public Health - Immunization Registry Data Submission

Overview

This measure requires that an eligible provider is in active engagement with a public health agency to submit immunization data.


Exclusion

Any eligible provider meeting one or more of the following criteria may be excluded from the immunization registry reporting sub-measure if the eligible provider:

  • Does not administer any immunizations to any of the populations for which data is collected by its jurisdiction's immunization registry or immunization information system during the EHR reporting period.

  • Operates in a jurisdiction for which no immunization registry or immunization information system is capable of accepting the specific standards required to meet the CEHRT definition at the start of the EHR reporting period

  • Operates in a jurisdiction where no immunization registry or immunization information system has declared readiness to receive immunization data from the EP at the start of the EHR reporting period.


Practice Fusion Workflow:

Step 1: Visit to your local immunization registry’s website and register your intent to submit immunization data within the first 60 days of your reporting period. If your registry does not have the capability to receive HL7 2.5.1 data electronically, you can qualify for an exclusion.

Step 2: In Practice Fusion, go to the Immunization registry section of your practice Settings and set up your account for electronic transmission.

This process will vary depending on the registry. Refer to the definition of "active engagement" below to determine if you have met the requirements for this measure based on the status of your integration. Your registry will be the contact for any confirmation about completion of this measure, so make sure to save documentation of all communication with your registry for your records.


Once you are connected and you activate your integration in the Immunization registry section of your practice Settings, you can start submitting immunization files directly to your state registry on an individual patient basis. In order to do so, visit the Immunizations section of the patient’s chart and  select Transmit all. Alternatively, click the Actions button and select Transmit to state registry.

Dashboard tip

You must manually indicate that you have completed this requirement.  Be sure to maintain documentation of the exchange for your records, such as a copy of the email that you sent and/or an email from the receiving party.


How is active engagement defined?

Any of the three criteria below are included under the umbrella of ongoing submission:

  • Completed Registration to Submit Data: The EP  registered to submit data with the PHA or, where applicable, the CDR to which the information is being submitted; registration was completed within 60 days after the start of the EHR reporting period; and the EP is awaiting an invitation from the PHA or CDR to begin testing and validation. This option allows providers to meet the measure when the PHA or the CDR has limited resources to initiate the testing and validation process. Providers that have registered in previous years do not need to submit an additional registration to meet this requirement for each EHR reporting period.

  • Testing and Validation: The EP is in the process of testing and validation of the electronic submission of data. Providers must respond to requests from the PHA or, where applicable, the CDR within 30 days; failure to respond twice within an EHR reporting period would result in that provider not meeting the measure.

  • Production: The EP has completed testing and validation of the electronic submission and is electronically submitting production data to the PHA or CDR.
