AOA MORE is providing support for the Meaningful Use public health objective for specialized registry reporting. To actively engage with MORE for the 2016 program year, you must register by February 29, 2016.
Engagement Option 1 — Completed Registration to Submit Data: The Eligible Professional (EP), eligible hospital or Critical Access Hospital (CAH) registered to submit data with the public health agency or registry registration was completed within 60 days after the start of the EHR reporting period; and the EP, eligible hospital, or CAH is awaiting an invitation from the Public Health Agency (PHA) or Clinical Data Registry (CDR) to begin testing and validation. This option allows providers to meet the measure when the PHA or the CDR has limited resources to initiate the testing and validation process. Providers that have registered in previous years do not need to submit an additional registration to meet this requirement for each EHR reporting period.
Active Engagement Option 2 — Testing and Validation: The EP, eligible hospital, or CAH, is in the process of testing and validation of the electronic submission of data.
Providers must respond to requests from the PHA or, where applicable, the CDR within 30 days; failure to respond twice within an EHR reporting period would result
in that provider not meeting the measure.
Active Engagement Option 3 — Production: The EP, eligible hospital, or CAH, has completed testing and validation of the electronic submission and is electronically submitting production data to the public health agency or registry.
Remember, to actively engage with MORE for the 2016 program year, you must register by February 29, 2016. Documentation from registration, which notes your desire to engage with MORE for the purposes of the EHR incentive program should be retained.
