2019 Requirements

Stage 3 Meaningful Use, Objective 8
The State of New Hampshire Office of Medicaid Services is not accepting data from EPs for Measure 1 (Immunization Registry) or Measure 2 (Syndromic Surveillance) or Measure 3 (Electronic Case Reporting) in 2019.

  • EPs may claim one exclusion when attesting for Measure 1, Measure 2, or Measure 3.
  • One copy of the New Hampshire Division of Public Health Services 2019 Readiness Letter Adobe Acrobat Reader Symbol must be uploaded as supporting documentation.
  • EPs must attest or claim exclusion for Measure 4 (Public Health Registry Reporting) and Measure 5 (Clinical Data Registry Reporting).
    • EPs that attest for Measure 4 and/or Measure 5: Must demonstrate that they are in 'active engagement' to submit data to a specialized registry. Active engagement means that the provider is in the process of moving towards sending "production data" to a public health agency or clinical data registry, or is sending production data to a public health agency or clinical data registry.
    • For Measures 4 and 5, EPs may choose to report to more than one public health/clinical data registry to meet the number of measures required to meet the objective. (The New Hampshire Division of Public Health Services is accepting cancer registry data from EPs.)
    • Supporting Documentation for Measure 4 and Measure 5: EPs that attest to being in active engagement to submit data to a registry must provide a signed, dated letter from that registry that verifies that the EP demonstrated active engagement during the EHR reporting period as well as the level of active engagement achieved (1, 2, or 3).
    • Supporting documentation for claiming exclusion to Measure 4 and/or Measure 5: EPs claiming exclusion to Measure 4 and/or Measure 5 must complete three actions in order to claim an exclusion:
      • Determine whether his or her jurisdiction (state, territory, etc.) endorses or sponsors a registry; and
      • Determine whether a National Specialty Society or other specialty society with which he or she is affiliated endorses or sponsors a registry.
      • Upload documentation demonstrating proof of due diligence that permits exclusion such as emails to specialty societies, screen shots of webpages, etc.
  • Adobe Acrobat Reader Symbol Adobe Acrobat Reader format. You can download a free reader from Adobe.
