Facilities Can Begin Registering for IPFQR Program

Participants in the Inpatient Psychiatric Facility Quality Reporting (IPFQR) program can begin the registration process on the QualityNet website. Prior to participating in the program, IPFs must complete registration and identify a QualityNet administrator in their facility to follow the registration process. In addition, IPFs must complete an online notice of participation (NOP) by Aug. 15, indicating they agree to participate in the IPFQR program and publicly report their measure rates. Due to a delay in providing an online NOP, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services has posted an interim form as a PDF on the QualityNet website. A webinar for IPFQR participants will be held Feb. 14 at 11 a.m. (PT). Hosted by Telligen, the IPFQR support contractor, the webinar will include a review of the QualityNet registration process. To participate, go to the registration page.
