CMS will be releasing two reports in early fall that will require Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) accounts to access. The reports scheduled for release are:
- PQRS feedback reports depicting your program year 2015 PQRS reporting results, including payment adjustment assessment for 2017.
- 2015 Annual Quality and Resource Use Reports (QRURs) that will show how groups and solo practitioners performed in 2015 on the quality and cost measures used to calculate the 2017 Value Modifier.
Prepare now by either signing up for an Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) account or ensuring that your existing account is active. EIDM accounts are required for participants to obtain 2015 PQRS feedback reports and 2015 Annual QRURs. The same EIDM account can be used to access both reports. To register for an EIDM account, visit the CMS Enterprise Portal and click “New User Registration” under “Login to CMS Secure Portal.”
The EIDM system provides a way for business partners to apply for, obtain approval of, and receive a single user ID for accessing multiple CMS applications, including PQRS feedback reports.
CMS has packaged several resources for EIDM system users into the EIDM System Toolkit, including the “EIDM User Guide” and “EIDM Quick Reference Guides”. These resources provide instructions for PQRS participants obtaining a new EIDM account, managing and updating information for an existing EIDM account, and adding account role(s) in the Physician Value-Physician Quality Reporting System (PV-PQRS) Domain. The PV-PQRS Domain provides access for PQRS program information for various tasks, including viewing feedback reports.
Information about the 2015 Annual QRURs is available at https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Medicare-Fee-for-Service-Payment/PhysicianFeedbackProgram/2015-QRUR.html.
Stay tuned for more information and resources in the coming weeks and months! In the meantime, please ensure that your EIDM account is active, current, and you’re able to log in, or begin the process to create an account.
