Individual clinicians and group practices participating in the Quality Payment Program can submit their 2017 performance data through March 31 at, eliminating the need to submit the data on multiple websites, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced yesterday. “The Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 requires CMS to implement the Quality Payment Program, and we are committed to doing so in the least burdensome way possible,” said CMS Administrator Seema Verma. “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.” CMS also announced that those groups of 25 or more clinicians using the CMS Web Interface to submit QPP quality data can submit their performance data from Jan. 22 to March 16.
