How do I connect Practice Fusion with my registry for Meaningful Use (Medicaid) and MIPS (Medicare)?


1. Register with ISDH

  • Providers attempting to complete active engagement for Meaningful Use and MIPS must first register with ISDH by completing a site enrollment form.

  • The next step will be to set up a call to go over interfacing your practice with CHIRP.

  • There will be several choices to determine in the call, but the important ones relevant to sending data will be:

    • Using HL7 2.5.1

    • The transport option should be HTTPS

  • After the call has been completed, and if no follow-up meetings need to be scheduled, the state will help you create a testing account with the registry.

  • You should receive three important piece of information for registering your practice in Practice Fusion. Keep them for your records. They are:

    • Username

    • Password

    • State provided Facility ID


2. Sign up for an integration through Practice Fusion in Immunization Settings

  • If information was entered incorrectly on the settings page or if there was any error with the file, you should be notified by ISDH with an explanation of the issue.

  • If you need to update the information entered in the Immunization settings page, delete the existing electronic transmission registration, correct the information, and resubmit the registration to re-start the testing and validation process with the updated information.


4. Activate your immunization integration in the Immunization Settings page

  • Once you have been notified by ISDH that you can proceed to submit production (real patient) data, visit the Immunization settings page and activate your integration.
