* Where “active engagement” can be one of the following three options:

Active Engagement Option 1 – Completed Registration to Submit Data: The EP, eligible hospital, or CAH registered to submit data with the public health agency or, where applicable, the clinical data registry to which the information is being submitted; registration was completed within 60 days after the start of the EHR reporting period; and the EP, eligible hospital, or CAH is awaiting an invitation from the public health agency or clinical data registry to begin testing and validation. This option allows providers to meet the measure when the public health agency or the clinical data registry has limited resources to initiate the testing and validation process. Providers that have registered in previous years do not need to submit an additional registration to meet this requirement for each EHR reporting period.

Active Engagement Option 2 - Testing and Validation: The EP, eligible hospital, or CAH is in the process of testing and validation of the electronic submission of data. Providers must respond to requests from the public health agency or, where applicable, the clinical data registry within 30 days; failure to respond twice within an EHR reporting period would result in that provider not meeting the measure.

Active Engagement Option 3 – Production: The EP, eligible hospital, or CAH has completed testing and validation of the electronic submission and is electronically submitting production data to the public health agency or clinical data registry.

Registration to Submit Data

The Modified Stage 2 and Stage 3 requires all incentive seekers to register their intent to submit data to KDHE within 60 days of the start of your reporting period.
