The West Virginia Cancer Registry (WVCR) continues to enroll eligible professionals (EPs) and eligible clinicians (ECs) who wish to implement electronic reporting of cancer data from certified electronic health record (EHR) systems under the Promoting Interoperability (PI) Programs (formerly Meaningful Use) or the Quality Payment Program (QPP). (Please note that hospitals cannot conduct cancer reporting under either of these programs.)
The information below provides an overview of the cancer reporting process in West Virginia for the 2019 reporting period. If you meet all eligibility criteria and wish to register, please print the "PI/QPP Cancer Reporting Checklist and Instructions" document, which contains more detailed information regarding each of the steps below. Please use this checklist as you move through the process to achieve ongoing data submission to the West Virginia Cancer Registry.
DECLARATION OF READINESS STATEMENT (posted June 22, 2018, and updated June 24, 2019): The WVCR will continue accepting cancer registrations for all stages under the Promoting Interoperability Programs or the Quality Payment Program for the remainder of the 2019 reporting period and continuing with the 2020 reporting period. It is the registrant's responsibility to know the requirements of the particular Federal Rule under which you are registering and reporting.
It is VERY IMPORTANT that providers keep a record of all communications received from public health throughout the registration, onboarding, testing, and production process, as well as any other documentation that may be needed for attestation or auditing purposes. Examples may include e-mails, screen shots proving date of registration, acknowledgement letters, etc. Due to the large volume of registrants, public health programs will not have the capacity to prepare such a log on your behalf.
