Public Health Reporting Measures and Standards

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has established Promoting Interoperability Programs for eligible providers and hospitals using certified electronic health reporting technology (CEHRT). At this time, LA County is participating in eligible provider (EP), eligible hospital (EH) and critical access hospital (CAH) Promoting Interoperability Incentive Programs. For more information please review the materials below.

LAC Declaration of Readiness: Under the Promoting Interoperability Incentive Program, Los Angeles County Department of Public Health is declaring readiness to receive eCR registration from eligible providers and hospitals beginning January 1, 2022.

Eligible providers and hospitals that wish to send electronic case reports to LAC/DPH to meet this Promoting Interoperability measure should register through the following form: eCR Registration Form

Eligible hospitals who wish to send electronic reportable laboratory results to LAC/DPH to meet this Promoting Interoperability measure should register with the California Department of Public Health HIE Gateway at

Los Angeles County Department of Public Health (LAC/DPH) is able to accept syndromic surveillance data reporting from eligible hospitals (EHs) and critical access hospitals (CAHs). If you are an eligible hospital or CAH, please contact to schedule your participation in and data connection to LAC/DPH Syndromic Surveillance project. LAC/DPH will provide the letter of attestation for this measure. Eligible hospitals and CAHs that are currently participating in the LAC/DPH Syndromic Surveillance project, and are looking to upgrade their data connections, should also email for further assistance.

For all other eligible providers, please take the exemption for this measure as we are only taking registration for EHs and CAHs. For your records, please print out the documents made available on this webpage (large blue and green buttons on the right hand side).

Eligible providers and hospitals administering immunizations during the reporting period and interested in submitting EHR HL7 2.5.1 immunization messages to meet the Promoting Interoperability Immunization Measure may do so by registering with the California Department of Public Health HIE Gateway/CAIR IZ Portal at
