Physician Reporting | Stage 2 Meaningful Use | Registration & Onboarding | EHR Certification Criteria
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 EHR Certification Criteria page for instructions on determining if your EHR meets the criteria for cancer reporting or contact your vendor for more information.
