Measure: Successful ongoing submission of electronic immunization data from Certified EHR Technology to an immunization registry or immunization information system for the entire EHR reporting period.
Exclusion: Any EP that meets one or more of the following criteria:
This objective aligns with Menu Measure 9 of Stage 1 Meaningful Use, and the measure has advanced from a test of submitting electronic data to immunization registries to successful ongoing submission of that data. Although more exclusions have been added, EPs should only evaluate whether A applies to them, as the state of Tennessee will be capable of accepting the specific standards, already provides timely information, and has no planned limits on enrolling EPs.
