For specific information about submitting Immunization or Laboratory Result messages, CMS offers Frequently Asked Questions.
The Oklahoma State Department of Health (OSDH) is encouraging all providers who have submitted a Meaningful Use (MU) Stage 1 test immunization or reportable disease laboratory result messages failing OSDH message validation to make the necessary system modifications and resubmit. With successful MU Stage 1 test message validation and secure messages transport capabilities, Oklahoma providers will be better prepared to meet attestation requirements for MU Stage 2.
If system modifications are not possible following a failed Stage 1 test message submission, the OSDH understands, for the purpose of meeting MU Stage 1 attestation requirements, a second message failure will occur. In the event that a provider has submitted one failed test message, makes no modifications to their system, and intends to submit a second test message for MU Stage 1 that will also fail, there is no need to submit the second test message to OSDH for validation.
