Program Year 2018

Program Year 2018

Program Year 2018 will be open for attestations January 14, 2019. The deadline to submit a 2018 attestation is April 30, 2019. You will not be able to submit a 2018 attestation if you have an unpaid 2017 attestation.

Update: Electronic Clinical Quality Measures

Starting in Program Year 2018, you will upload electronic Clinical Quality Measure (eCQM) data to the Clinical Quality Metrics Registry (CQMR). As we discussed in the Program Year 2018 webinar, you will upload eCQM data to the CQMR either as QRDA III files or using an Excel template. Although you will continue to use MAPIR for the rest of the attestation, you will no longer manually enter eCQMs into MAPIR. A complete attestation includes submissions to both MAPIR and the CQMR. Both portions of the attestation must be submitted by April 30, 2019.
To ensure you are ready to upload your eCQMs when you attest, please begin the onboarding process to the CQMR. Onboarding involves registering for a OneHealthPort account; completing legal agreements; and reviewing training materials. You can find details on our onboarding page. Webinars, coming in early 2019, will provide more information on using the system.
If you have any questions about the CQMR, please email us at
