Beginning on Jan. 2, 2018, eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals attesting to the Medicare Electronic Health Record Incentive Program will submit their 2017 meaningful use attestations to the QualityNet (Qnet) secure portal, according to a notice on the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services website. The change applies to 2017 meaningful use data, as well as future reporting periods. EHs and CAHs attesting for both Medicare and Medicaid (as dually eligible hospitals) will register and attest for Medicare on the QNet portal and update and submit registration information in the Medicare & Medicaid EHR Incentive Program Registration and Attestation System. CAHs also will have the option to manually or electronically attest for electronic clinical quality measures using QNet. Effective Oct. 1, 2017, the Qnet portal opened for new user enrollment registration.
