Home Health Agencies Urged to Establish Access to iQIES

Home Health Agencies (HHAs) are urged to establish access to the Internet Quality Improvement and Evaluation System (iQIES) by December 23, 2019. ​The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is upgrading the current system​ to make it more reliable, secure, accessible and scalable. The enhanced system reduces provider burden and enhances CMS’ ability to serve customers. The rollout will not require providers or vendors to change current processes related to submission of data. ​However, CMS will require a new user management system because Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) are no longer needed to access this system. All users will have to create an account and establish credentials in the Healthcare Quality Information System Access, Roles, and Profile System (HARP)​, which is a secure identity management portal provided by CMS.​
