Are you meeting Objective 10: Public Health Reporting?



Meaningful Use is not ending
Are you meeting Objective #10: Public Health & Clinical Data Registry Reporting?

If you’re not submitting to your registries, or in testing and validation with your registries, to meet the Public Health Reporting objective for 2016, in applicable states, you must complete registration to submit data no later than February 29, 2016.

Providers must register to their state immunization registry, public health agency (PHA), or where applicable, the clinical data registry (CDR), within 60 days of the start of the reporting period in order to meet active engagement on public health reporting for Meaningful Use.

If you’re applying for exclusion, some state registries require you to apply within 60 days of the start of the reporting period. We recommend if you have specific questions about how to meet the public health reporting objective for your practice, to contact CMS or your state registry directly.

To meet the Public Health Reporting objective, the eligible professional must be in active engagement with a public health agency to submit electronic public health data from CEHRT, except where prohibited and in accordance with applicable law and practice.


For more information, please refer to the Eligible Professional EHR Incentive Program Objectives and Measures for 2015 Table of Contents or copy/paste this URL in your browser:

Active engagement means the provider is in the process of moving towards sending “production data” to a public health agency or clinical data registry, or sending production data to a public health agency or clinical data registry.

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
