Stage 3-PublicHealth Reporting Tip Sheet-PDF20.21.v.9.18Objective 10:Public HealthRegistrationDate(required for allproviders)Public HealthRegistries Enter the date that the provider’s practice or individual provider wasregistered with Maine’s Public Health Registry; and what registries wereselected for the provider. The date is the original date of the practice site PH registration. The 2020requirements state that the registration date must be any time prior to orwithin the first 60 days of the providers reporting period. Once a practice site is registered, in any previous year, and the provider islisted in the registration you do not need to register again. Once a practice site is registered you can add/remove people from theregistration as providers change locations. When you add a provider to the practice registration, they will use theoriginal date of the practice registration as a proxy and not the date theywere added to the practice site registration. Type in all registries that the provider is registered for. The registries should be within the provider’s scope of practice. Ex: if youdon’t treat Cancer, don’t register for that registry. Maine has the following 4 registries available:1. Immunization Registry (IR)2. Syndromic Surveillance Registry (SSR)3. Electronic Case Reporting (ECR)-available for the 2020 program year.4. Public Health Registry Reporting (Cancer and Specialty Registries willmove here for Stage 3) Currently not available in Maine5. Maine does not yet have the Clinical Data Registry (CDR) available. –Providers will be able to use the exclusion for this measure.Example 1: Practice A - registered with Maine’sPH registries on February 1, 2014. All providersworking at that practice were listed in the PHregistration and will use the February 1, 2014 date.If a provider joined Practice A in March of 2019, thepractice will add this new provider to any current PHregistries that apply to the provider’s scope ofpractice. The new provider can meet any registryrequirement for MU that is applicable and the datethey will use is the original date the practice wasregistered – in this example 2/1/14. The practiceregistration meets the requirement with the originalregistration date as it is prior to the new providersreporting period and the new provider is added byproxy.For more information on the Public Health Registriesplease contact:Immunization Registry: [email protected] to Maine CDC ImmPact pageSyndromic Surveillance Registry: [email protected] Case Reporting: [email protected] Registry: [email protected]
