CMS plans to sunset the Web Interface in 2022, so this will no longer be a data submission option going forward for MIPS Alternative Payment Models (APMs), including Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). Next year ACOs participating in the Medicare Shared Saving Program (MSSP) will be required to report on 3 eCQM/CQM MIPS measures established under the new APM Performance Pathway (APP). While these changes will present some challenges for ACOs, we have developed tips to help prepare for the end of the Web Interface and to support compliance with the new reporting requirements.
In the 2021 Final Rule for the Quality Payment Program (QPP), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) introduced a new reporting framework for MIPS Alternative Payment Models (APMs) and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) called the APM Performance Pathway (APP). CMS will also sunset the Web Interface as a collection and submission type in 2022. In this article we highlight the implications for ACOs as they are required to report through the APP, including the new APP quality measure set and strategies for successful reporting.
Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) participating in the Medicare Shared Savings Program will have new reporting requirements beginning in 2021. In its Final Regulation for the Quality Payment Program (QPP), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is changing the data that these organizations must report each year and how the data gets submitted. The changes are intended to reduce reporting burdens and improve patient outcomes. ACOs will be able to partner with CMS Qualified Registries like MDinteractive to meet their data reporting needs.
