April 3, 2017
Written by Sharon Phelps
In the PQRS program, any clinic or practice that wanted to report as a group had to register by June 30 to be able to participate as a group.
However, in the MIPS program, only selected groups will have to register in advance.
Who does NOT need to register?
- Those who will be participating in MIPS as an individual
- Those who will be participating as a group using the following submission methods:
- Qualified Registry
- Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR)
- Electronic Health Record (EHR) data submission
Who MUST register by June 30, 2017?
Groups that intend to use the CMS GPRO Web Interface. The GPRO Web Interface is a secure internet-based application available through a portal to registered users. CMS pre-populates the Web Interface with a sample of the group’s patients and the group practice completes the data requested for those patients. In 2017, only groups of 25 or more eligible clinicians that have registered can report via the Web Interface. ND/OR
Groups that intend to administer the Consumer Assessment of Health Provider & Systems (CAHPS) for MIPS survey. In 2017, only groups of 2 or more eligible clinicians that have registered can participate in the CAHPS for MIPS survey.
What is the registration deadline?
For those who will be submitting using the CMS GPRO Web Interface and/or participating in the CAHPS for MIPS survey need to register by June 30, 2017. The registration period opens April 1, 2017.
