As of today, July 1, 2021, the 2022 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Self-Nomination period for Qualified Clinical Data Registries (QCDRs) and Qualified Registries is now open. QCDRs and Qualified Registries are Centers for Medicare & Medicare Services (CMS)-approved vendors that collect clinical data on behalf of clinicians for data submission. Please note that eligible clinicians, groups, virtual groups, and alternative payment model (APM) entities wishing to report for the 2022 MIPS performance period via the QCDR or Qualified Registry reporting mechanism do NOT need to nominate themselves. Only entities wishing to participate (and who meet the requirements) as a QCDR and/or Qualified Registry need to complete the Self-Nomination form.

To complete the Self-Nomination form, log into the Quality Payment Program (QPP) website. Two Self-Nomination forms are available to QCDRs and Qualified Registries:

  • The 2022 Self-Nomination form is for new entities or existing-approved entities who have had remedial action taken against them.
  • The 2022 simplified Self-Nomination form is for existing approved QCDRs and Qualified Registries in good program standing. Please contact the MIPS QCDR/Registry Support Team (PIMMS Team) at or, if you cannot find your simplified Self-Nomination form instead of creating and submitting a new Self-Nomination form for your organization.

Please ensure that a member of your organization has a QPP account with the appropriate associated role. Please note that sharing Health Care Quality Information Systems (HCQIS) Access Roles and Profile (HARP) account credentials with other users is not permitted and is considered a security violation. Each individual user must have their own HARP account to log in to Unauthorized or improper use of this system is prohibited and may result in disciplinary action and/or civil and criminal penalties.
