Between April 7 and June 15, the Hospital Quality Reporting program will transition to a new QualityNet ID management security system called Health Care Quality Information Systems Access Roles and Profile (HARP), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced yesterday. “With HARP, you will no longer need to maintain multiple user accounts or login ID’s,” CMS said. “Instead, your HARP account will give you access to all reporting features available in HQR.” CMS will host a series of educational webinars the week of April 6 titled “Setting up Your HARP Account for the Hospital Quality Reporting System.” Watch for CMS details on the transition and webinars, or contact the QualityNet Help Desk at qnetsupport@hcqis.org for more information.
