THE BLUEPRINT VERMONT CLINICAL REGISTRY IS A SPECIALIZED REGISTRY  (Updated 10/19/18)Eligible Professionals at practices participating in the Vermont Blueprint for Health may use their engagement with Blueprint’s Vermont Clinical Registry to meet the Specialized Registry reporting option for the Public Health Objective. A significant number of Blueprint practices send their data through VITL’s Health Information Exchange where it then flows to the Vermont Clinical Registry. Data may also be submitted to the registry via flat file, per the CMS Specification Sheet: "Providers may use electronic submission methods beyond the functions of CEHRT to meet the requirements for the Specialized Registry Reporting measure." If you have any questions about whether you qualify for registering, onboarding or reporting data to this registry for meeting the Specialized Registry reporting measure in 2018, please do not hesitate to contact the PIP/EHRIP Team: ahs.dvhaEHRIP@vermont.gov
