The Launch of the Quality Payment Program Website
Today marks a milestone for our Quality Payment Program Front End Development Services program— the public launch of the submission system for clinicians in the Quality Payment Program.
Here’s a potion of the press release from CMS:
Website makes it easier for clinicians to submit data by offering one user-friendly site for all submissions
Today, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that doctors and other eligible clinicians participating in the Quality Payment Program can begin submitting their 2017 performance data using a new system on the Quality Payment Program website (qpp.cms.gov). The data submission system is an improvement from the former systems under the CMS legacy programs, which required clinicians to submit data on multiple websites. Now, eligible clinicians will use the new system to submit their 2017 performance data for the Quality Payment Program during the 2017 submission period which runs from January 2, 2018 to March 31, 2018, except for groups using the CMS Web Interface whose submission period is January 22, 2018 to March 16, 2018.
“The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) requires CMS to implement the Quality Payment Program, and we are committed to doing so in the least burdensome way possible,” said Seema Verma, Administrator of CMS. “The new data submission system makes it easier for clinicians to meet MACRA’s reporting requirements and spend more time treating patients instead of filing paperwork.”
Ad Hoc is proud to be a part of the launch of this important system. The contract for this work was awarded as a task order under the CMS Agile Delivery to Execute Legislative Endeavors for Quality Related Initiatives (ADELE-QRI).
