Electronic Lab Reporting 

Step 3: Testing

  • Stage 1: Upload successful or unsuccessful test message into the Registration tool.
  • Stage 2: Upload successful test message into the Registration tool. Include Electronic Lab Reporting Registry validation reports that indicate test messages are free of errors.

E-mail is not a secure mechanism of data transfer. Do not submit test messages containing personally identifiable health information though email. The agency reviews the messages, ensuring they meet standards specified for Meaningful Use. Once review is complete, the agency provides communication about the outcome of testing that can be used for attestation purposes.

For Stage 1 of Meaningful Use, completion of testing satisfies the requirements for attestation. Stage 2 will continue until production.
