CAIR2 Supports Meaningful Use Stage 3

On July 1, 2017, California Immunization Registry (CAIR) declared its readiness to support Stage 3 of the Meaningful Use program, including the ability to receive patient queries and return patient histories and/or recommendations as well as the ability to receive National Drug Codes (NDC) for newly–administered immunizations. Guidance on message formatting is available in the CDC HL7 2.5.1 Implementation Guide for Immunization Messaging, Release 1.5 and Addendum. Consult with your vendor to determine whether your EHR is ready for Stage 3. If your site is interested in Stage 3, which requires bi-directional data exchange (BiDX) with CAIR2, please complete the CAIR2 Bi-directional Interest/Readiness SurveyA self-directed bi-directional onboarding (testing) process is available now.  


NOTE:  CAIR2 does not support and will not provide Stage 3 attestation for NON-VACCINATING PROVIDERS engaged in query-only messagingNon-vaccinating providers should therefore not enroll in CAIR2.
