American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

SSR Users Updates: January 12

Dear SSR Participants,

Have you signed up to use the Surgeon Specific Registry (SSR) for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) for 2017? There is still time to avoid a 4 percent cut to your Medicare payments in 2019 by participating in MIPS through the SSR. Please visit the SSR MIPS Resources and Education page to learn how the SSR can help you meet reporting requirements.

For those signed up for MIPS 2017, the preview submission report is now available for you to approve your submission to CMS by January 31, 2018. Please see the document titled “SSR User Quick Guide R1.6.1” under Notifications in the SSR platform to learn how to access and utilize the preview submission report to submit your MIPS measures to CMS.

If you have questions, please reach out to us at or at 312-202-5408. Please note ACS will be closed on Monday, January 15 for the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday.

Thank you,

Your SSR Team
