How do I connect Practice Fusion with my registry for Meaningful Use (Medicaid) or MIPS (Medicare)?
1. In order to begin the Meaningful Use or MIPS testing and submission process, you must begin by registering your intent to initiate ongoing submission with GRITS.
Complete the online registration located here. Indicate that you are working with the Iron Bridge Integration.
GDPH will then contact you to provide specific information about the next steps.
If you need any further assistance with registering or receiving your credentials, please reach out to GRITS directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Upon receipt of the credentials, complete the registration for electronic submission of immunization 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 Georgia Registry of Immunization Transactions and Services (GRITS) from the Receiving Registry drop-down list.
Enter your credentials. Select the “i” icon for additional information about each credential. If you do not know your credentials, please contact GRITS directly.
Click Register to begin the testing and validation process.
3. Testing and validation process
Practice Fusion will start sending test immunization files to GRITS 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 GRITS or Practice Fusion 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. Once you've corrected the information, 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
Practice Fusion will notify you via email when you can proceed to submit production (real patient data). You might also be notified by GRITS directly.
Only once you have been notified that you can submit production data, navigate to the Immunization settings page and activate your integration.
5. Submit immunization records directly to GRITS
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 the Actions button and select Transmit to state registry.
Be sure to transmit the immunization file to the state registry for each patient whose immunization record you update.
