Email with any quality reporting questions.

Review your NACOR dashboard

Remember to review your 2021 quality reports in the NACOR dashboard to ensure compliance with 2021 MIPS reporting data completeness requirements:

  • Report a minimum of six measures with at least one outcome or high priority measure
  • Measures must meet the 20-case minimum to be scored
  • Measure Reporting Rate must be at least 70% of all eligible cases across all payers for each measure reported

This is the last opportunity to make necessary corrections prior to the final data submission deadline, February 15, 2022. For more information, email

Quality data processing on hold

Any data files submitted to the FTP for processing after the February 15, 2022, deadline will not be included in NACOR's 2021 CMS data submission. Data processing is on hold while AQI reviews data integrity and auditing per CMS regulations for a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) and Qualified Registry (QR).

FTP processing will resume in early April. If you submit a file to the FTP during this interim period, the file will be processed as usual when the hold is lifted.

If there is an issue with your practice's data, submit a help desk ticket by emailing

February Office Hours

Due to the MIPS quality reporting deadlines, there will be no February Office Hours recording. Office Hours will resume in March.

If you have any suggestions for topics you would like AQI or QRA to discuss during the next Office Hours, please email by Friday, March 4.
