Ready to submit data? Activate FTP account

For security reasons, all FTP accounts (for those who upload data to NACOR) will be disabled if no activity occurs within a 90-day window. If your practice is ready to start submitting data, you may not have access to log in to the FTP.

If you suspect your account has been disabled due to inactivity, submit a help desk ticket by emailing FTP access has no impact on user access to the NACOR dashboard.

Quality Reporting data file notifications

AQI began sending notifications to 2022 Quality Reporting practices via email on November 2. There are two emails - one for practices that have uploaded a new data file and the other for those practices that have not yet submitted a data file for the 2022 MIPS performance year.

If a new data file has been uploaded, AQI encourages a member of your practice to review the NACOR dashboard as it will allow you to monitor your providers' performance as well as identify problems with measures submitted and make necessary corrections. The notifications will be sent every other week through the final data submission deadline on February 15, 2023.

If you have any questions, email

Review your NACOR dashboard

Practices that have recently uploaded new data files should review the NACOR dashboard as it allows you to monitor your providers' performance, as well as pinpoint any problems with the data and make necessary corrections prior to data submission deadlines.

Data completeness requirements for the 2022 MIPS Performance Period are:

  • Submit 12 months of data (January – December 2022).
  • Report a minimum of six measures with at least one outcome or high priority measure.
  • Measure must meet the 20-case minimum to be scored.
  • Reporting rate must be at least 70% of all eligible cases across all payers for each measure reported.

Note: The minimum point threshold to avoid a negative payment adjustment has increased from 60 to 75 points for the 2022 performance year. It is important to check the measure performance rates for your practice to make sure the measures reported will earn the maximum points allowed for the Quality Component.

As a reminder, section 8 of the Addendum for Quality Reporting to the NACOR Participation Agreement states that your practice "and each EC agree, and Participant shall require each EC, to review his/her measure results in AQI at least four times a year and provide timely feedback to AQI on the measures that will be reported on the EC's behalf."

If there are questions about the dashboard results, submit a ticket to
