State-wise • Determine readiness of state/central registry to receive data in new format • Obtain and apply instruction pertinent to your reporting requirements prior to installing ANY software upgrades • You and your registry are NOT alone in the process • However - Do not be blind-sided – ie look at the retired fields for 2010 ie Tobacco, Alcohol, Family History – do you still want to collect?
