Note: Maine CDC is looking for hospitals and practice sites that are willing to work with them to prepare for an active registry for Electronic Case Reporting. Please contact: nedss@maine.gov for more information

 

Maine CDC is accepting registrations for the Electronic Case Reporting registry. For the 2019 program year you will contact the ECR registry at: nedss@maine.gov and they will take your information for the ECR registry. You can answer "yes" for MU purposes by registering through this process. Maine CDC will relay to us any provider that has requested to be included in the ECR registry and we will credit that for MU purposes.

The Public Health Wizard will have the ECR registry added for program year 2020. Anyone that has registered through Maine CDC will have their information updated in the wizard once the wizard has the ECR added.
