We are almost done with another year of MIPS, can you believe it? Before you set aside time to attest, take these two steps.
Step 1: Test your HARP account
At the beginning of 2019, CMS implemented the HARP website. This was formerly your EIDM account. If you had a previous EIDM account, you do not need to register for HARP. Users can use the same login for the new platform. However, some of the user roles were not carried over (like mine) when the transition happened. I had to call HARP and get my role reactivated. It took a few days and then I was able to attest.
Step 2: QPP
Once you have successfully logged into your HARP account and you can see all of your roles and practices, then you can log into your QPP site to verify all of that information is correct.
Step 3: Attest
There are 3 ways to attest this year:
- Through the QPP website directly
- Direct submission from your EMR vendor
- Specialized registry
No matter what way you submit, you will want to make sure both accounts are set up properly so that you can verify data was submitted to CMS correctly. Obviously if you are entering data directly into the QPP website, you know it is correct. However, if you are submitting via EMR or specialized registry, you will want to log into the QPP site a few minutes after submission to verify you can see the submission data in your QPP portal.
If you cannot see the data, contact your specialized registry or EMR vendor to see what happened.
