Integrate with your State Immunization Registry

About Immunization Registry Reporting

You must be registered with your state's immunization registry for HL7 submission before configuring the RXNT integration.

An Immunization Registry is a confidential, population-based, computerized information system that allows providers to collect vaccination data of the population within a geographic area. The information can be shared one-way (via export) or with a bidirectional interface. 

By collecting and exporting immunization record data, you may qualify to meet specific MIPS measures for HIE (Health Information Exchange). For more information, visit the CMS website at www.cms.gov.

First, read the HealthCareXchange: Practice On-Boarding Process.

Secondly, the customer will begin completing HealthCareXchange's Configuration Form and directly email the form to HealthcareXchange at support@healthcareexchange.com
