2016: Meaningful Use

MedXpress Specialty Registry

The MedXpress Registry has been appointed by the American Podiatric Medical Association and the American College of Foot and Ankle Pediatrics as a Specialty Registry.

For some, meeting the Meaningful Use Public Health measure can be a challenge because they cannot submit to any immunization or syndromic surveillance registry. The cancer registry has been changed to specialty registry (which would include the cancer registries). With this change you can now report to 2 separate registries (we take care of both) which will take care of your public health measure requirement of reporting to two registries for 2016 for Meaningful Use.

For Meaningful Use in 2016, providers must register and have received confirmation of successful registration within the first 60 days of your Meaningful Use reporting period (by February 28, 2016).
