Cancer Reporting | Physician Reporting | Stage 2 Meaningful Use | Cancer Reporting Registration
In support of physician cancer reporting and Stage 2 Meaningful Use (MU2), the Texas Cancer Registry (TCR) will be implementing electronic reporting from certified electronic health record (EHR) systems. EHR reporting is designed to be secure, automated, and unobtrusive to practice operations. Successful ongoing submission to the TCR using this EHR reporting method will also assist eligible professionals (EPs) in receiving Medicare and Medicaid incentive funds.
TCR Onboarding Requirements
In order to meet the cancer reporting objective and measure, an EP must use the capabilities and standards of CEHRT 45 CFR 170.314 (f)(5), and (f)(6). The TCR will not invite providers to onboard whose EHR product does not meet certification criteria § 170.314(f)(5) Cancer case information AND § 170.314(f)(6) Transmission to cancer registries.
Please visit our informational Cancer Reporting Certification Criteria Check page for intructions on determining if your EHR meets the criteria for cancer reporting or contact your vendor for more information.
Cancer Reporting Registration for physicians is now open. If you have any questions about cancer reporting to the TCR using a certified EHR or registration, please send us an email.
