Please navigate to the Public Health Objectives and Reporting Guidance section* by selecting the appropriate Meaningful Use Stage below.
*Please note that a practice of Eligible Professionals may span across MU Stage 1 and/or MU Stage 2 reporting requirements. In these cases, it is recommended to review both Public Health Objectives and Reporting Guidance sections due to the differences in reporting requirements.
Starting in Meaningful Use Stage 1, Eligible Professionals and Eligible Hospitals must engage in testing with New York State Department of Health (NYS DOH) and New York City Department of Health Mental Hygiene (NYC DOHMH) Public Health Agencies to successfully meet Meaningful Use Stage 1 Public Health Objectives under the EHR Incentive Programs.
To help formalize the Meaningful Use Stage 1 testing process, Eligible Providers are encouraged to declare their intent to test for a given Public Health Objective using the MU1 Public Health Testing Request Form.
