Public Health Reporting (per PY 2018 Specification Sheet for Stage 3)

For Stage 3, providers will have to attest to two of the five public health measures. Providers planning on attesting in Program Year 2019 to active engagement with Florida Shots will be required to re-register for 2019. Stage 3 requires bi-directional capability and providers should begin now working with Florida Shots to ensure that requirements can be met, including re-registration.

ONC Information Blocking Questions

As part of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) and the Quality Payment Program final rule there were requirements that participants in both the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs show that they have not knowingly and willfully limited or restricted the compatibility or interoperability of their certified electronic health record (EHR) technology. These questions are required for providers to show they are meeting this requirement by attesting to three statements about how they implement and use certified EHR technology (CEHRT). Together, these three statements are referred to as the "Prevention of Information Blocking Attestation." Providers should carefully read each question and answer appropriately. For more information on the questions, refer to the CMS Prevention of Information Blocking Fact Sheet.
