The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has transitioned the system to create identity management accounts and request access to the Quality Payment Program (QPP) website from the Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) System to the HCQIS Access Roles and Profile (HARP) System.

This means that if you’re participating in QPP or are a representative of an Alternative Payment Model (APM) that reports data to CMS through the QPP website, you would now sign in to the QPP website using your HARP credentials to view, submit, and manage your data.

CMS has posted the following videos on the QPP Resource Library to provide step-by-step instructions on how QPP participants can navigate the new HARP system and request access to an organization through the QPP website so you can view, submit and manage data for that organization.
