File Upload and Quality Scoring

File Upload and Quality Scoring


Today we are going to
take a look at how to upload data
and review the upload within the QPP portal. First step we’re going to do
is navigate to QPP.cms.gov and sign in
using our credentials based off of
our account information. From here, we are going to agree that anything we are submitting
is true, accurate, and complete. Once approved, you can see
we are hitting the landing page, where we have the option
to begin reporting. So, once I click on
“Start reporting,” I’m going to navigate
down into the group that I wish to report for,
and click on “Report as group.” Once I’ve clicked this, I’m taken to
the Reporting Overview page. For this group, no data
has been submitted, and, as you can see,
none of the information is currently populated. From here, I’m going to
click on “Upload a file”… …which then from here
I’m going to click “Upload.” This specific file that I have
uploaded did contain an error. At this point, you can see
that the file was not processed correctly, and I do have the ability
to download the report to tell me
what is wrong with my file. If I open up the file,
you can see that the issue with this specific submission
had a problem with the performance start
or performance ending. So, we go back through.
We fix this. And then let’s say we want
to upload the correct file. From here, click “Upload,” and you can see that
the upload was successful. At this point, you can click
on either “Upload more” or “View submission.” Once I click on
“View submission,” you can see that the data
associated with my submission has been populated
on the page. We also have a notification
letting us know that all changes
are saved automatically, as well as when
it was last updated. So, we have our preliminary
score, our Quality score, Promoting Interoperability,
Improvement Activities, and Cost will be N/A as that information
will not be available until after the submission
period closes. Additionally, you can see here that we’re prompted
with a notification that the score will not be final
until the summer of 2020. For Quality, the main update
is the fact that we have collection types associated with the way
the data is actually processed. In previous years, it was broken out into
different submission methods, where each one of those would
be calculated and compared. For this year, the information
is all contained within one scoring,
and our submission type is then notified
within the measures itself. So, you can see
for this measure, it was reported via the eCQM, whereas this measure
was reported utilizing the MIPS Clinical
Quality Measure specification. Similar to in previous years,
we have our performance rate, our measures score, as well
as the details associated with each one of
the measures that’s available. We have our sum for all
of our measure points, and then, also, the information
that’s associated with our category score, bonus points,
total maximum points, and our category weight.
