Stage 3 Meaningful Use Registration

Healthcare provider personnel who are designated Florida SHOTS "Local Org Administrators" can now register for Meaningful Use Stage 3 within Florida SHOTS. Providers attesting for MU Stage 3 must demonstrate bi-directional exchange with query/response (QBP/RSP message) capability as well as the submission of VXU messages consistent with CDC's 2.5.1 release 1.5 version of the HL7 Implementation Guide for immunization messaging.

  • Step 1: Log in to your Florida SHOTS account.
  • Step 2: Select “Meaningful Use” from the Florida SHOTS menu.
  • Step 3: Select "Stage 3" from the menu.

Free, Expert Help with Data Quality

If your office participates in data upload from your EHR, it’s important to frequently monitor your data to ensure that the vaccine records are uploading properly into Florida SHOTS. Don’t know where to begin to check for errors and warnings? We’re here to help!

A personalized analysis can be completed and includes:

  • Full review of your data in the registry using the Data Quality Tool
  • Review of immunization codes within your software
  • Review of all rejections, warnings, and accepted data
  • Patient chart review to look for discrepancies in documentation between the patient’s chart, EHR, and data reported to Florida SHOTS

If you would like a thorough data quality analysis, contact our data quality specialist, Gretchen, at (786) 271-6453, or [email protected].
 

Reminder for Data Exchange Participants

All data exchange participants will need to use real-time web services. With web services, uploads occur automatically, so as soon as Florida SHOTS receives the records from your EHR, the shots are processed immediately! This means your office can instantly create and print the DH Form 680 and immunization history forms without duplicate data entry.

If your office is currently using a “batch” process to upload your immunizations, make sure to contact your software provider to ask about real-time and bi-directional web services. Your EHR company will need to move to real-time web services for your shots to upload and post. As we move through the process of transitioning all uploads to web services, our Florida SHOTS Data Team will be working closely with practices to ensure a smooth transition.

INSTANT PROCESSING. FEWER ERRORS.

Accurate data in Florida SHOTS leads to easier reporting, more efficient workflow, and better patient care. Real-time data exchange allows for instant shot data processing and reporting. It also eliminates duplicate data entry—reducing the chance for errors.

Remember: as of June 30, 2019, all data exchange participants will be required to use real-time interfaces. If you aren't already using real-time data exchange, check with your software provider about switching as soon as possible.

COMPLETE. CORRECT. CURRENT.

Uploading Providers: Now Is the Time for Real-Time Uploads

By July 1, 2019, all data uploads will be moving to real-time web services. With web services, uploads occur automatically, so as soon as Florida SHOTS receives the records from your electronic health record (EHR), the shots are processed immediately! This means your office can instantly create and print the DH Form 680 and immunization history forms without duplicate data entry.

If your office is currently using a “batch” process to upload your immunizations, make sure to contact your software provider to ask about real-time and bi-directional web services, as Florida SHOTS will no longer accept batch files after June 30, 2019. Your EHR company will need to move to real-time web services for your shots to upload and post.
