After four years of providing oncology practices with a one-stop shop for submitting data to the Center for Medicare and Medicaid's (CMS) Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS), ASCO has announced that the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®) Reporting Registry will no longer offer MIPS reporting after the conclusion of the 2020 MIPS reporting year.
This includes electronic reporting through QOPI Reporting Registry System Integration (data pull and data push), the QOPI Reporting Registry Web Interface Tool, and CancerLinQ®’s SmartLinQ™ QRR Pathway.
Practices already signed up for 2020 will continue to be fully supported through the completion of the 2020 submission period.
The QOPI Reporting Registry would like to express our appreciation for our practices' continual commitment to improving quality of care for their patients and for their participation with the QOPI® Reporting Registry.
ASCO is working to compile a list of appropriate reporting alternatives that will meet the specialty needs of our oncology practices in 2021 and beyond. Additional information and resources will be added after the 2021 qualified QCDR list is released by CMS.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
