How one central cancer registry (CCR) navigated Electronic Health Record (EHR) reporting from clinic/physician offices (C/POs)
Wednesday, November 19, 2014: 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
In the past two decades, HIIT innovations have changed the way we collect and share health-related data. In the coming decade, new innovations will bring about more change and contribute to public health prevention efforts aimed at improving wellness across the lifespan and reducing disparities. We will demonstrate how increased reporting by clinics and physician offices (C/POs), largely due to implementation of Meaningful Use (MU) Stage 2, can reduce under-reporting and improve timeliness and completeness of cancer reporting by central cancer registries (CCRs). We will show how creating a more automated way of entering potential new cancer cases – primarily cases submitted by non-hospital facilities without an EHR – into a CCR database can improve efficiency, accuracy and timeliness and describe how we are using National Death Index (NDI) linkage to obtain complete survival information. This will allow us to measure the impact of public health and other programs aimed at improving population health and reducing disparities. Finally, we will outline how MU Stage 3, final rules for which will be published in 2015, offers both opportunities and challenges to CCRs. We will discuss how MU Stage 3 can impact progress made by CCRs during MU Stage 2 and outline steps CCRs will need to take to be ready for Stage 3 implementation.
Session Objectives: Identify at least two barriers for clinicians and public health entities in implementing EHR reporting.
Demonstrate how automation can improve processes by increasing efficiency and accuracy.
Discuss the benefits of conducting NDI linkage.
List two or more effects Stage 3 Meaningful Use may have on providers that report to central cancer registries.
