How do I connect Practice Fusion with my registry in order to meet Medicaid's Meaningful Use requirements?
1. Register with ImmTrac
Select "Meaningful Use Stage 2: Register Intent"
Complete the form and print a copy of the page for your records
ImmTrac will send you an email with an import code and FTP credentials for your practice
Note: if you are a Medicare clinician participating in the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), additional guidance for new registrations has not yet been provided. If you have already completed ImmTrac registration previously, your active engagement will continue. If you are a new registrant, please contact ImmTrac directly for information.
2. Upon receipt of the email, complete the Immunization registration in Practice Fusion.
Ensure that the following information has been accurately entered into the EHR in the applicable areas: Provider name, Primary facility address, and NPI. Note: For instructions on editing your EHR Settings, click here.
Navigate to Settings --> Vaccines and immunizations--> Immunization registry.
Under Step 2: Connect, select Connect an EHR facility to your state registry.
Select the facility name with which you are registering.
Select “Texas - Texas Immunization Registry (ImmTrac)" the Receiving Registry drop-down list.
Enter your credentials using the import code and FTP credentials that ImmTrac emailed you. Select the “i” icon for additional information about each credential.
Click Register to begin the testing and validation process.
3. Activate your immunization integration in the Immunization Settings page
Once you have registered for integration within Practice Fusion, return to the Immunization registry settings page and activate your integration.
Immediately contact our Customer Service team to transition your practice to the ImmTrac testing facility.
4. Submit immunization records directly to the ImmTrac testing environment
After our Customer Service team has transitioned you to the ImmTrac testing environment, begin electronically transmitting immunization files using the steps below for the period of time designated by ImmTrac.
Go to the Immunizations section of the chart and click Transmit all. Alternatively, click the Actions button and select Transmit to state registry.
5. Submit immunization records directly to the ImmTrac production environment
Once ImmTrac has notified you that you are ready to send immunization messages to their production environment, please contact Customer Service to request to be transitioned to Production.
