MACRA Minute: March 2018


Submit Your 2017 Performance Data (updated 3/29/19)

It’s time to submit your 2017 MIPS performance data. Key dates to remember include:

The QPP data submission system is quick and easy, especially if your using certified EHR or submitting data from a registry. Once started, your data can be updated as many times as necessary up through the April 3 deadline.

Each time you update your submission, you will notice how your preliminary score changes for both each individual measure and overall score. Starting your data submission today will give you a chance to see what adjustments you may need to make before the March 31 deadline.

If data is submitted on your behalf . . . either by an EHR vendor, Qualified Registry, or Qualified Clinical Data Registry, you can still view your submitted data by logging-in to the QPP data submission system.

Logging-In to the QPP Data Submission System

To log-in and submit data to the QPP website, you must have valid EIDM credentials:

  • The EIDM account provides user identification for accessing CMS’ systems.
  • The system will connect each user with their practice Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN). Once connected, ECs can report as a group or as individual clinicians within the practice.
  • To learn about how to create an EIDM account, see this user guide.

ECs who need assistance with the data submission system may contact CMS by email or toll free at 1-866-288-8292.
