The Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) Reporting Registry, a Qualified Clinical Data Registry brought to you by ASCO and the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO), offers practices a one-stop shop for submitting your 2018 data to the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).
2020 Medicare payment adjustments depend on how practices participate during the 2018 reporting year, as well as how they perform compared to other 2018 reporting practices.
In one easy-to-use dashboard, the QOPI Reporting Registry allows practices to report on 25 CMS-approved quality measures as well as attest to participation Improvement Activities and Advancing Care Information. The QOPI Reporting Registry dashboard also provides an estimated MIPS score so you can see how you’re doing throughout your reporting.
How to Report With the QOPI Reporting Registry?
The QOPI Reporting Registry is available to any practice with at least one active ASCO or ASTRO member. QOPI Practices can sign up using their existing QOPI Credentials. ASTRO practices and ASCO practices not participating in QOPI can request credentials by selecting “New Sign Up” in the bottom right corner.

Practices participating in the QOPI® Reporting Registry can choose between two different methods of data entry to report their MIPS data to CMS.
Electronic Reporting: System Integrated Approach: Practices who opt to report through the System Integrated Approach can install the Registry Practice Connector, a read-only extraction software that connects to the practice’s Electronic Health Record, enabling quality data to be mapped and pulled electronically. Sign up for the 2018 System Integrated Approach is now open.
Manual Data Entry: Web Interface Tool: Practices that cannot support a System Integrated Approach can use the Web Interface Tool, a web-based platform to manually enter their quality data. Practices using the Web Interface Tool still have the option to attest to Improvement Activities and Advancing Care Information. Sign up for the 2018 Web Interface Tool will be available mid-February.
Individual versus Group Reporting: Practices can choose to report for their providers individually by National Provider Identifier (NPI) or as a group by Tax Identification Number.
2018 MIPS reporting through the QOPI Reporting Registry costs $495 per NPI. This fee must be paid before providers will be granted access to the MIPS Dashboard.
