Providers Should Use QualityNet for Attestation in 2018

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services reminds providers that, as of Jan. 2, they must use the QualityNet Secure Portal for calendar year 2017 attestation under the Electronic Health Record Incentive Program. This change, which also applies to future reporting periods, is intended to streamline the attestation process by migrating it to the system already used for clinical quality measure reporting. Medicaid-eligible hospitals should contact their state Medicaid agencies for specific information on how to attest. Dually eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals will register and attest for Medicare on the QualityNet portal and update and submit registration information in the Registration and Attestation System. Questions should be directed to the QualityNet Help Desk at or (866) 288-8912.
