Frequently Asked Questions About Meaningful Use: References

  1. Are sample proposals available to states on the development of state infrastructure to support implementation of immunization reporting from physician electronic health records (EHRs) to state public health agencies?
  2. Is there a list of EHR vendors that are certified for meaningful use (MU)?
  3. Is there a guide that will provide some background information for states that haven’t been able to attend the NAACCR-NPCR Town Hall calls for cancer registries?
  4. Since only physicians who participated in MU Stage 1 are eligible for MU Stage 2, is there a list of physicians in our state who participated in MU Stage 1?
  5. Are there core activities in stage 1 that require providers to interface directly with Medicaid for patient care?
  6. Do we have links to various state cancer registries? Which states are up and running? Who should vendors call to sign up for cancer reporting?
  1. Are sample proposals available to states on the development of state infrastructure to support implementation of immunization reporting from physician electronic health records (EHRs) to state public health agencies?

Yes. See the proposal created by Michigan. Other states may also provide sample proposals on their Web sites.

  1. Is there a list of EHR vendors that are certified for meaningful use (MU)?

Yes. The Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) provides a list of the vendors that have certified EHR systems.

  1. Is there a guide that will provide some background information for states that haven’t been able to attend the NAACCR-NPCR Town Hall calls for cancer registries?

Yes. The CDC EHR MU Web site includes guidance documents and templates. Presentation slides from and recordings of Town Hall meetings can be found on the NAACCR Web site.

  1. Since only physicians who participated in MU Stage 1 are eligible for MU Stage 2, is there a list of physicians in our state who participated in MU Stage 1?

Ask your MU coordinator, immunization program, or health information technology (HIT) coordinator. They are likely to have some sort of formal registration process, which is the only way we know to get this information at this time.

The Identification of Critical External Partnerships Physician Reporting Planning document has a list of HIT directors. Most states have been able to get a list of physicians who have attested from their Medicaid program, but CMS is not releasing a list of physicians who have attested for Medicare. More guidance will be offered in the How to Count Physicians document.

  1. Are there core activities in stage 1 that require providers to interface directly with Medicaid for patient care?

Yes. Your state Medicaid office is your best source for a list of providers who have attested.

  1. Do we have links to various state cancer registries? Which states are up and running? Who should vendors call to sign up for cancer reporting?

CDC’s National Program of Cancer Registries (NPCR) provides contact information and links to all state cancer registries. States are preparing for MU Stage 2 implementation, which will begin on January 1, 2014, so few of their Web sites will have this information. CMS plans to develop a central repository of information on public health agencies’ (PHAs’) capacity to participate in each MU public health objective. The repository may also include transport mechanisms allowed by each PHA.
