Meaningful Use (MU) Cancer Reporting is for Ambulatory/Eligible Providers only and NOT hospitals.
The Iowa Cancer Registry (ICR) is working with the Iowa Department of Public Health (IDPH) and the Iowa Health Information Network (IHIN) with Meaningful Use in Iowa. Information on Ambulatory Healthcare Provider Reporting to the Central Cancer Registries including the file layout and Implementation Guide (IG) is provided below. Deciding which IG to use is determined by the stage the Eligible Provider (EP) is in.
The on-boarding process for cancer reporting is outlined in a checklist at Iowa Department of Public Health – Meaningful Use.
