Difference between NACOR Basic and NACOR Benchmarking

In 2019, AQI added a new reporting option: NACOR Benchmarking. NACOR Basic includes access to the NACOR dashboard and reports providing local level analytics. NACOR Basic remains a complimentary benefit for all participating ASA members. For access to NACOR National Benchmarks practices should enroll in NACOR Benchmarking. Please review the 2019 reporting options and fee structure before registering for 2019. A 2019 registration form is required for all NACOR practices except those enrolled in Quality Concierge.

2018 MIPS final scores

CMS has released the final 2018 MIPS scores. To view final scores, Eligible Clinicians must log in to their HARP accounts with CMS, as AQI does not have access to final scores. Letters with final scores will not be sent to clinicians. Practices without HARP accounts can obtain them through the CMS Enterprise Portal by selecting "PQRS: Physician Quality Reporting System" when prompted to "Choose your application."

2019 XML Schema

Effective July 1 all data submissions to NACOR must use the 2019 version of the XML Schema. The updated 2019 schema information and an XML validation are posted on the AQI website. Any files submitted using the 2018 format will fail validation. Please check with your vendors to ensure they are using the updated version.
