A Message to the CHITREC Community Regarding Our COVID-19 Actions

Engaging in Public Health Reporting for Stage 3 Objective 8

You’re invited to an upcoming webinar, “Engaging in Public Health Reporting for Stage 3 Objective 8,” with CHIP Health Informatics Facilitator Sam Ross. Beginning in 2019, all Illinois eligible professionals (EPs) in the Medicaid Promoting Interoperability (PI) program are required to meet Stage 3 objectives and measures.

In the presentation, Sam will give an overview of Objective 8, which entails engaging with a Public Health Authority (PHA) and/or a Clinical Data Registry (CDR) to submit electronic public health data. Illinois PHAs sponsor several options that may be applicable to your practice and there are many CDRs from which to choose, if needed.

Sam will provide tips for meeting two of the five measures, the minimum requirement. Choices include working with an immunization registry, syndromic surveillance, electronic case reporting, a public health registry, and/or a clinical data registry. Join us to learn more about your options, understand criteria for meeting “active engagement,” and ensure you have documentation for audit protection. A Q&A session will follow.
