How do I connect Practice Fusion with my registry in order to meet Medicaid's Meaningful Use requirements?
1. In order to begin the Meaningful Use testing and submission process, you must first register your intent to initiate ongoing submission with the State Registry
Navigate to http://health.mo.gov/atoz/mophie/index.php
Click Registration of Intent.
Complete and submit the Form of Intent to be placed into a queue for continuing with the on-boarding process. (Note: The queuing and times vary by program)
Your practice will be contacted after your materials have been received and you are ready to move forward with the on-boarding process.
If you need any further assistance with registering, please contact MoPHIE@heath.mo.gov
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 ShowMeVax or MIRI registration previously, your active engagement will continue. If you are a new registrant, please contact ShowMeVax or MIRI directly for information.
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 Missouri-(ShowMeVax) 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 ShowMeVax directly.
Click Register to begin the testing and validation process.
3. Testing and validation process
Practice Fusion will start sending test immunization files to ShowMeVax 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 Practice Fusion or ShowMeVax 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 ShowMeVax 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 ShowMeVax
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.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact MoPHIE@heath.mo.gov
