On January 2, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) launched a new data submission system for groups and clinicians participating in the Quality Payment Program.
Here are some key points:
Previously, under the various CMS legacy programs, clinicians had to use multiple mechanisms to submit performance data. CMS has now consolidated the data submission process to a single access point via an online portal, making it easier for clinicians and vendors to submit data.
The submission period for the 2017 QPP performance year runs from January 2, 2018, to March 31, 2018.
For groups using the CMS Web Interface, the submission period runs from January 22, 2018 to March 16, 2018.
To submit performance data, clinicians must visit the QPP website. Once on the QPP website, users can login by entering their EIDM User ID and password. Users may have used this ID and password in the past to login to the CMS Enterprise Portal.
If you don’t have an EIDM User ID and password, you can create an account on the CMS Enterprise website.
In the portal, clinicians have the option to choose between multiple data submission options, including Qualified Clinical Data Registries (QCDRs), qualified registries, attestation, or the CMS Web Interface.
Data can be uploaded incrementally throughout the submission period. Groups and clinicians are not required to upload all of their data at once. However, all performance data must be uploaded before the submission period deadline.
For Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) participants,real-time initial scoring updates will appear as performance data is tallied on the site. This scoring may change as new data is uploaded, or if new benchmarks take effect. Note that special status, Alternative Payment Model (APM) status, and Qualifying APM Participant status (QP), will not initially appear in each category score.
Final scores will appear after the submission period closes.
