How to Meet Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services Public Health Reporting Measures in California

This website provides direction on meeting the public health reporting measures for the Promoting Interoperability Program (PIP) and Medicare Incentive Payment System (MIPS) by reporting to California Department of Public Health (CDPH) registries, including:

  • Immunization reporting
  • Electronic Laboratory Reports (ELR)
  • Electronic Case Reports (eCR)
  • Public Health Registry reporting

CDPH does not have a syndromic surveillance system yet, but the below link will tell you whether your Local Health Jurisdiction has a syndromic surveillance system to satisfy this measure.

Steps to meeting the CMS public health reporting measures for California

Is the public health measure relevant to your practice?

The determination as to whether a public health measure is relevant to a practice must be determined by that practice, as CDPH does not determine the capabilities of healthcare practices. CDPH does not issue letters of exclusion for any public health measure. A practice instead self-certifies an exclusion for a public health measure that is not relevant to them.

Does your Local Health Jurisdiction want you to register with them?

Check the California Public Health Electronic Reporting Capacity Matrix

If directed to register with CDPH, connect with the appropriate registry via the following website or e-mail:
