The objective of this measure is to submit electronic data to health registries.
The POAG and dry eye syndrome specialized registries are built in, so your reporting is instantaneous. No need to wait for an external registry to pick up your data. The registries are populated by each visit where POAG or dry eye syndrome is documented and a valid procedure is performed.
To sign up for these specialized registries, contact Eyefinity at 800.269.3666 option 2.
Additionally, AAO IRIS qualifies as a clinical data registry for ophthalmologists. For information about connecting Eyefinity EHR to IRIS, go to eyefinity.com/iris.
AOA MORE qualifies as a clinical data registry for optometrists. Eyefinity EHR will support AOA MORE integration in 2019. Look for more information about this integration in summer 2019.
AAO IRIS qualifies as a clinical data registry for ophthalmologists. For information about connecting ExamWRITER to IRIS, go to aao.org/iris-registry.

The MIPS-eligible clinician is in active engagement to submit data to a clinical data registry.
Active engagement can be achieved through any one of the following options:
Completed Registration to Submit Data. The MIPS-eligible clinician registered to submit data with the CDR to which the information is being submitted; registration was completed within 60 days after the start of the performance period; and the MIPS-eligible clinician is awaiting an invitation from the CDR to begin testing and validation. This option allows MIPS-eligible clinicians to meet the measure when the CDR has limited resources to initiate the testing and validation process. MIPS-eligible clinicians that have registered in previous years do not need to submit an additional registration to meet this requirement for each performance period.
Testing and Validation. The MIPS-eligible clinician is in the process of testing and validation of the electronic submission of data. MIPS-eligible clinicians must respond to requests from the CDR within 30 days; failure to respond twice within a performance period would result in that MIPS-eligible clinician not meeting the measure.
Production. The MIPS-eligible clinician has completed testing and validation of the electronic submission and is electronically submitting production data to the CDR.
Any MIPS eligible clinician (EC) who meets one or more of the following criteria may be excluded from the Clinical Data Registry Reporting measure:
- The EC does not diagnose or directly treat any disease or condition associated with a clinical data registry in their jurisdiction during the performance period. OR
- The EC operates in a jurisdiction for which no clinical data registry is capable of accepting electronic registry transactions in the specific standards required to meet the certified EHR definition at the start of the performance period. OR
- The EC operates in a jurisdiction where no clinical data registry for which the MIPS-eligible clinician is eligible has declared readiness to receive electronic registry transactions as of six months prior to the start of the performance period.
This measure is part of the Public Health and Clinical Data Exchange objective. Two measures from this objective are required to achieve a promoting interoperability score. The Public Health and Clinical Data Exchange objective is worth up to 10 points.
The following are suggested roles for completing this measure:
