Number of mu objectives

Number of MU Objectives

For hospitals, Public Health objectives move from menu to core in Stage 2.


Public health objectives stage 1 mu

Public Health Objectives – Stage 1 MU


Public health objectives stage 2 mu

Public Health Objectives – Stage 2 MU


Arizona department of health services adhs meaningful use

Stage 2 public health objectives include this wording:“except where prohibited, and in accordance with applicable law and practice”

  • Providers must report if ADHS accepts it, even if not required by law (example: adult immunizations)

  • Providers do not have to report if specifically excluded by law


Registration of intent to submit to ph

Registration of Intent to Submit to PH

  • Stage 2 requires Provider registration with the Public Health Agency (PHA) of intent to initiate ongoing submission

  • Deadline: within 60 days of the start of the EHR reporting period


Registration of intent to submit to ph1

Registration of Intent to Submit to PH

  • ADHS is developing a website for Provider registration

    • While the website is in development, please email [email protected] to start the registration process.

  • Once you have registered with ADHS, you will receive information on next steps for each objective you plan to complete


The stage 2 measure will not be met if the provider

The Stage 2 measure will notbe met if the provider:

  • Fails to register their intent by the deadline; or

  • Fails to participate in the onboarding process as demonstrated by failure to respond to the PHA written requests for action within 30 days on two separate occasions.

  • ADHS may place you in a hold queue if the program has a large number of implementations at the same time. This does not count against you – you can still meet the public health measure. Once you are removed from the hold queue and action is requested, the above 30 day periods may apply.


Stage 2 public health letters

Stage 2 Public Health Letters

  • ADHS will provide written communication (including electronic form) affirming that the EP, EH or CAH registered intent to submit messages or met the appropriate measure


Electronic laboratory reporting elr

Electronic Laboratory Reporting (ELR)


What is elr

What is ELR?

  • Labs are required to report a set of test results to ADHS (A.A.C. R9-6-204)

  • Electronic reports are integrated into the state electronic disease surveillance systems

  • ELR shortens the time for reporting and initiation of infectious disease control measures

  • ELR decreases hospital staff time needed for reporting


Elr standards

ELR: Standards

  • Message format: HL7 Version 2.5.1 Implementation Guide: Electronic Laboratory Reporting to Public Health

    • AZ-specific Implementation Guide as well

  • Vocabulary:

    • LOINC

      • Codes used for test ordered and test performed

    • SNOMED CT

      • Codes used for specimen types and test results (i.e. organisms isolated by culture)


Elr secure message transport

ELR: Secure Message Transport

  • SFTP – Preferred

  • PHIN-MS – CDC tool, used but not preferred


Elr current status

ELR: Current Status

  • ADHS is currently accepting ELR submissions for MU

  • About 25 hospitals have tested (3 in production)

  • Onboarding additional laboratories based on readiness and following steps outlined at www.azdhs.gov/meaningful-use


Elr technical workshop

ELR Technical Workshop

  • An ELR Technical Workshop was held on May 17 in Phoenix and by webinar

  • The workshop described the process, tools and resources to implement ELR with ADHS

  • All presentations and handouts are posted at: www.azdhs.gov/meaningful-use/electronic-lab-reporting


Syndromic surveillance

Syndromic Surveillance


What is syndromic surveillance

What is Syndromic Surveillance?

  • Public Health receives reports of demographics and symptoms of patients (ADT messages)

  • This information is used to identify outbreaks or health events and monitor the health status of a community

  • Syndromic surveillance is fast – Public Health can see what’s happening in a community before the patients have a confirmed diagnosis or laboratory results


Syndromic surveillance standards

Syndromic Surveillance: Standards

Message format:

  • HL7 Version 2.5.1 Implementation Guides: Multiple PHIN Messaging Guides for Syndromic Surveillance available at: http://www.cdc.gov/phin/resources/PHINguides.html#ss

  • AZ-specific Implementation Guide currently under review


Syndromic surveillance secure message transport

Syndromic Surveillance: Secure Message Transport

  • SFTP – Preferred

  • PHIN-MS – CDC tool, used but not preferred

  • Other options may also be available


Syndromic surveillance current status future plans

Syndromic Surveillance: Current Status/Future Plans

  • Utilizing the national BioSense 2.0 system as the MU Syndromic Surveillance system in AZ

  • Create AZ-specific implementation guide, user manual, training documents.

  • Plan to start accepting submissions from hospitals in early 2014

  • Will require a Data Use Agreement between facility and ADHS


Immunization registry asiis

Immunization Registry (ASIIS)


What is asiis

What is ASIIS?

  • The Arizona State Immunization Information System (ASIIS) is the state’s immunization registry

  • Providers are required to report all immunizations administered to ≤18 y.o. under ARS 36-135

  • Pharmacists are required to report any immunizations administered regardless of patient age under ARS 32-1974

  • Enables providers to access a complete immunization record for each child they treat regardless of where immunizations may have been received


Asiis standards transport

ASIIS: Standards & Transport

  • Message format: HL7 Version 2.5.1 Implementation Guide: Implementation Guide for Immunization Messaging

  • Message Transport:

    • HTTPS Post (recommended)

    • SOAP (recommended)

    • SFTP


Asiis current status future plans

ASIIS: Current Status/Future Plans

  • ASIIS currently accepting submissions for MU

  • Over 730 providers have tested (400 in production)

  • Standard protocols and guidelines for testing distributed after receipt of initial interest form – available by sending a request to [email protected]


Asiis steps for providers hospitals

ASIIS: Steps for Providers/Hospitals

  • Complete an initial interest form: https://app.azdhs.gov/phs/asiis/ehrinteroperability/InitialInterestForm.pdf

  • ASIIS program will follow up to provide protocols and guidelines for testing and attestation

    To meet Meaningful Use Stage II, Arizona providers who completed a Stage I attestation by 12/31/12 must:

  • Establish an active interface with ASIIS to regularly upload immunization data

  • Upload immunization data in HL7 v.2.5.1 for the 90 day reporting period, which ends no later than 12/31/2014
