The CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics conducts national healthcare surveys, which include the National Hospital Care Survey (NHCS), National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NHAMCS), and the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey (NAMCS). These nationally representative surveys provide data and information that Congress, researchers, and others use to shape healthcare policy.
The National Center for Health Statistics is accepting registration from eligible clinicians, professionals, and hospitals or critical access hospitals indicating their intent to submit data to the National Health Care Surveys as part of the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs (Meaningful Use). Parties may attest to Objective 8 - Public Health and Clinical Data Registry Reporting, Measure 4 for MU Stage 3.
Please visit this CDC Meaningful Use site
and consider registering for the National Health Care Surveys. Affected entities can register their intent to submit data by e-mailing NCHSMUInfo@cdc.gov
. Use that e-mail to submit questions about the initiative as well.
