FAQ

If a State wants to require Immunization reporting, is the provider still required to choose another public health objective or does the new meaningful use definition in that State supersede the general definition?

If the State required any of the public health measures as core measures for the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program, then that would fulfill the eligible professional's (EP) requirement to select at least one public health measure. If the EP meets the exclusion criteria for any of the public health measures that a State has moved to the core set, with CMS approval, they would still have to select at least one public health measure from the menu set.
