IV. Clarification on Bi-Directional Immunization Query/ Response and Meaningful Use
Solano County recognizes that there are many factors that can impact the implementation of Bi-Directional Immunization query/response (QBP/RSP) messages including technical, resources, workflow, business priorities and overall value. As the Public Health authority, Solano Public Health will work with healthcare partners to ascertain if and/or when QBP/RSP should be implemented in Production. A healthcare partner may still meet Meaningful Use requirements, regardless of their QBP/RSP implementation status, provided the healthcare partner is in "Active Engagement" in testing with Solano Public Health.
