All Quality Payment Program (QPP) practices and providers, participating in the MIPS program, are invited to join our Office Hour call. Office Hours is an open discussion format for participants to seek clarification and guidance on the QPP and answer any questions or concerns you may have. This month we will focus on how to submit data using the CMS QPP Submission Portal for the 2017 Performance Year.
We ask all attendees to prepare questions for this call. Your feedback is very important to the success of this program as we want to ensure we are best meeting your needs. We are here to help and provide as much assistance as possible.
Upon completion of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Navigate the CMS MIPS Submission Portal and process
- Identify data sources needed to report your QPP data for the 2017 performance year through the CMS Portal
