EHR Objective 10: Public Health Reporting

In Modified Stage 2, all public health objectives have been consolidated into 1 objective.

Measures

The EP is in active engagement with a public health agency to submit electroinc public health data from the CEHRT, except where prohibited and in accordance with applicable law and practice.

Measure Option 1 - Immunization Registry Reporting
Provider is in active engagement with a public health agency to submit immunization data.
Exclusion? Yes, if provider doesn't administer vaccinations or operates in a jurisdiction that doesn't accept immunization data from EP.

Measure Option 2 - Syndromic Surveillance Reporting
Provider is in active engagement with a public health agency to submit syndromic surveillance data.
Exclusion? Yes, if provider is in a category of providers from which syndromic surveillance data is not collected or operates in a jurisdiction in which no public health agency is capable of or ready to receive syndromic surveillance data.

Measure Option 3 - Specialized Registry Reporting
Provider is in active engagmeent to submit data to a specialized registry.
Exclusion? Yes, if provider does not diagnose or treat any disease or condition associated with a specialized registry, or operates in a jurisdiction where no specialized registry is capable of or ready to receive electronic registry data.

Note: It is possible that dentists will meet exclusion criteria for all public health measures. Even if you intend to claim an exclusion, you may need to sign participation agreements or addendums.  For a full list of public health agencies by state, see http://www.aphl.org/programs/informatics/Pages/MU-Public-Health-Readiness.aspx. Contact your state early to determine requirements, sign legal agreements, or begin the on-boarding process.

Example:  To attest for this measure in Kentucky, all EPs, including those who claim an exclusion, must have a signed participation agreement and immunization registry authorization addendum on file with KHIE. Contact KHIE for information. KHIE 2014 MU Guidance (PDF)
