Meaningful Use of Electronic Health Records (EHR), CIR, and Medicare/Medicaid Incentive
In July 2010, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) published final rules under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) and HITECH Act of 2009, which authorizes incentive payments to healthcare providers and hospitals that demonstrate meaningful use of certified electronic health records (EHRs).

Registration and Online Registry Read Only Access for Providers Outside of NYC
If you are a provider outside of the New York City area you may register with the CIR and sign up for Online Registry read-only access to view immunization records reported by NYC health care provider(s) to the CIR.
Please complete the Citywide Immunization Registry Registration Form for Health Care Providers Outside of NYC and Security Administrator Form for Read-Only Access to the Online Registry (PDF) and send to the CIR by fax: (347) 396-2559.
Next, the Online Registry assigns a Username and Password to the Security Administrator (User Manager). The Security Administrator (User Manager) can then set up Usernames and Passwords for additional staff members. He or she must have each additional user read and sign a User Confidentiality Statement (PDF) for Online Access and keep these signed statements on file at the site.
