CMS just announced an updated and streamlined system for creating and verifying user accounts for the Quality Payment Program (QPP).

For 2017 and 2018 an organization representative was required to have access to their organization data through the Enterprise Identity Data Management (EIDM) System. This was in order to gain access to the submission area of, to submit QPP data and verify eligibility. This system is no longer used for the QPP and is now replaced by the HCQIS Access Roles and Profile (HARP) System.

Good News! If you already had an EIDM account, your login information and accesses should have migrated to the new HARP System.

Any new users will need to request and manage their access to organizations by using the HARP System and Access to this identity verification system is REQUIRED to be able to submit data for the QPP program. It is also used to request any targeted reviews, view progress on claims measure performance, view eligibility, and many other tasks, depending on your access and the type of organization you represent. For a step-by-step guide to signing up for a HARP account, refer to the QPP Access User Guide.
