Which Registries Meet the Meaningful Use Stage 2 Public Health Reporting Objective?

February 23, 2016

Electronic health record companies and policymakers have been telling orthopaedic surgeons to contact their state societies for assistance regarding their participation in registries in order to meet meaningful use stage 2 requirements. At the moment, AAOS has not endorsed a registry.

Based on TOA’s research, it appears that only a handful of registries are currently recognized as qualified registries for the purpose of meaningful use stage 2. They include:

  • American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR). This requires hospitals to pay the fee to join, and not all Texas hospitals have done so. Plus, this only includes join replacement.
  • FORCE-TJR. This is also for joints.
  • California has a joint registry that qualifies.
  • The state of Michigan has a registry that qualifies.
  • Oberd appears to be the only private registry that qualifies.
  • The AANA registry with Arthrex is waiting approval from the federal government.
