How do I connect Practice Fusion with my registry in order to submit immunization data for Meaningful Use (Medicaid) or MIPS (Medicare)?
1. In order to begin the immunization testing and submission process, you must first register your intent to initiate ongoing submission
Follow the enrollment steps detailed by the State of Utah.
Once the Utah Department of Health programs and USIIS receive your documentation, a member of the Provider Relations Team will contact you, confirm your enrollment status, and schedule a training session for you and your office staff.
2. Next, you must register for Public Health Reporting for Meaningful Use or MIPS
Complete your registration here.
Once the Utah Department of Health programs and USIIS receive your registration, the contact person entered during registration will be contacted and provided with further information regarding the next steps in the process.
Please ensure that the contact person you have entered is readily available to respond to any and all communication by phone or email.
