Has your MEDITECH hospital deferred one or two public health interfaces to Stage 2? If so, this blog post will provide you with resources to help you get the answers you need for connecting your HCIS to public health agencies and registries.
Recently, Dr. John Halamka wrote about “The Menu Set Options Not Chosen” in his healthcare IT blog, Life as a Healthcare CIO. He stated that the Stage 1 Menu Set options not chosen are the most valuable predictor of the challenging areas in Stage 2.
Many hospitals chose to defer the two public health interfaces of reportable lab results and syndromic surveillance. Are you in this same boat, too? If so, check out a Public Health Interfaces Guidelines and Resources guide here.
If you are tasked with implementing public health interfaces and would like to know more about how to meet the Meaningful Use requirements, join the integration experts at Iatric Systems for a webcast on Wednesday, January 23, 2013 at 2:00 pm ET titled, “Public Health Interfaces: How do State requirements affect my hospital?” To register, click here.
You will learn:
• Public Health Interfaces capabilities
• Technical specifications for the following three interfaces: Immunization, Lab Reportables, Syndromic Surveillance
• Important Meaningful Use dates and Objectives
• Implementation Guidelines and working with your state’s Department of Health
There will also be a Q&A session so you may ask any specific questions about your MEDITECH public health interfaces implementation strategy — whether your hospital is using MAGIC, C/S or 6.x.
