Meaningful Use Stage 1 Providers
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.
MU1 Public Health Testing Request Form
The MU1 Public Health Testing Request Form
requests data from an Eligible Provider to inform the EHR Incentive Programs and the Public Health Agencies that the provider is ready to engage in testing. Please note that Public Health Agencies and registries may require additional information beyond this Form before the provider can submit test messages.
