Registries Can Declare Readiness to Receive Electronic Public Health Data through New Input Form
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is developing a centralized repository for public health agency (PHA) and clinical data registry (CDR) reporting. The repository will assist providers in finding entities that accept electronic public health data.
As stated in the October 2015 final rule, the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs include several public health measures that require eligible professionals, eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals to be in active engagement with a PHA or CDR to submit electronic public health data.
Repository Details
