Meaningful Use Core Objective #10 – Public Health Reporting

(2) Syndromic Surveillance Reporting; and

(3) Clinical Data Registry Reporting.

Providers MUST be registered and actively engaged with the registry by FEBRUARY 29th, 2016. If they are not, they will NOT be able to attest to Meaningful Use for the reporting year of 2016.
