It's never too early to send quality data to NACOR

Quality reporting deadlines for the 2018 performance year are approaching quickly. Practices are encouraged to start sending quality data to AQI before the deadline to allow time for review and to submit corrected files if any errors are identified.

The 2018 data completeness requirements for those reporting MIPS are six measures, including one outcome measure, for 60 percent of the eligible cases over a 12-month period (1/1/18 - 12/31/18). Quality data from January through November 2018 must be submitted by January 31, 2019. The deadline to submit all 2018 data is February 15, 2019.

December 15 deadline to register for data services assistance

All NACOR participants with data from multiple sources must submit data files merged and in XML format to AQI's data submission portal. Data services are available for a fee for practices that need merging and formatting assistance. The deadline to register for this service is December 15. Email if your practice needs merging and formatting assistance.

Attesting to Improvement Activities via NACOR

Clinicians can attest to 2018 Improvement Activities using the provider list in the NACOR Dashboard. In this step-by-step tutorial, clinicians learn how to select the Improvement Activity to which they will attest through either the individual or group reporting option.

As participants of NACOR, practices can attest to activity IA_PSPA_1: Participation in an AHRQ-listed patient safety organization. This is a medium-weighted activity worth 10 points.

Practices also must document the date range that the Improvement Activity was performed in the practice list in the NACOR dashboard. For more information, contact your AQI account manager or email
