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:
State provided Facility ID
2. Sign up for an integration through Practice Fusion in Immunization Settings
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 "Indiana -Children & Hoosier Immunization Registry Program External (CHIRP)" from the Receiving Registry drop-down list.
Enter your facility (state provided Facility ID), facilityname, userid (your HL7 username), and password (which should be the same for testing and production). You should have this information from completing the registration process. If you do not know any of the information required in this section, make sure to contact CHIRP Support. Select the “i” icon for additional information about each credential.
Click Register to begin the testing and validation process.
3. Testing and validation process
Practice Fusion will start sending test immunization files to ISDH along with the following information from your EHR account: provider name, primary facility address, NPI, and information you entered on the Immunization settings page.
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.
5. Submit immunization records directly to ISDH
Once activated, you will be able to electronically submit immunization files to your registry for each patient.
Go to the Immunizations section of the chart and select Transmit all. Alternatively, click Actions and select Transmit to state registry.
