Centralized Repository

We developed a centralized repository for public health agency and clinical data registry reporting to provide an additional, centralized source of information for eligible professionals, eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals looking for public health, clinical data, or specialized* registry electronic reporting options.

The CMS Centralized Repository is not the authoritative source of all reporting options currently available. The information within the Repository was collected in September and October 2016.  Participation in the Repository by public health agencies, clinical data registries, and specialized registries* is voluntary. 

For the Medicare or Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs, the absence of an entry on the CMS Centralized Repository is not sufficient documentation for claiming an exclusion and does not prevent a provider from attesting to reporting to a registry. Providers must still check with jurisdictional public health agencies or specialty societies to which they belong and document that information to satisfy Medicare or Medicaid reporting. For more information on steps providers have to take to determine if there is a specialized registry available for them, or if they could instead claim an exclusion, please review FAQ 13657 and FAQ 14117.


*For more information on what can count as a specialized registry, please review FAQ 13653.
