As in previous columns, we are continuing to review the objectives and measures for Modified Stage 2 Meaningful Use set forth from 2015 through 2017. In this column, we review Objective 10: Public Health Reporting Measure Option 3 Specialized Registry Reporting (Table).1This is the final Objective and Measure Option within Objective 10. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides the following excerpt for specialized registries:
“Reporting to registries is an integral part of improving population and public health. The Meaningful Use (MU) Stage 2 regulations added a new public health–related menu (optional) objective for eligible professionals (EPs), the capability to identify and report specific cases to a specialized registry, other than a cancer registry, except where prohibited, and in accordance with the applicable jurisdictional laws and practice. This objective was included to provide more flexibility in the menu objectives that EPs can choose. Specialized registry reporting is likely to provide many EPs with an MU menu option that is more aligned with their scope of practice. This objective may provide meaningful use credit to those EPs engaged in the beneficial use of Certified Electronic Health Record Technology (CEHRT) to report specific cases and/or case information to specialized registries.
