Welcome to the HVHC MU Specialized Registry Homepage


Declaration of Readiness for Public Health Reporting

The High Value Healthcare Collaborative (HVHC) is currently accepting data from Eligible Professionals (EP), Eligible Hospitals (EH) and Critical Access Hospitals (CAH) to fulfill the Meaningful Use EHR Incentive Program’s Public Health Objective, Measure 3, submission of data for specialized registry reporting.

To meet this objective, EPs, EHs and CAHs are requested to electronically submit data from Certified Electronic Health Record Technology (CEHRT) to HVHC.

To register intent to submit such data to HVHC, please complete the registration form or email HVHC.TDI.Program.Office@dartmouth.edu.

Purpose

The High Value Healthcare Collaborative (HVHC) has elected to be recognized as a Meaningful Use Specialized Registry as a way to aid our member sites in meeting Meaningful Use Public Health measures.  HVHC has been charged with collecting and recording information on eligible providers and eligible hospitals that onboard and provide ongoing submission of data to HVHC for auditing purposes.

Specialized Registry Reporting

Measure:  The EP, EH or CAH is in active engagement to submit data to a specialized registry.

  • Providers may use electronic submission methods beyond the functions of CEHRT to meet the requirements for the Specialized Registry Reporting measure.
  • A provider may report to more than one specialized registry and may count specialized registry reporting more than once to meet the required number of measures for the objective.
  • A specialized registry cannot be duplicative of any of the other registries or reporting included in other meaningful use requirements.
