EIDM registration guide

CMS streamlined the data submission process under the Quality Payment Program (QPP). Now there is one system for data submission. Starting on January 2, 2018 you can go to QPP web-portal ( and log into the system using your Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) account and appropriate user role associated with your organization.
