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

SSR Users Updates: January 19

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 2017 reporting requirements by the January 31, 2018 deadline.

Please note. There will be SSR platform downtime this Saturday, January 20, from 12:00 midnight (EST) to 4:00 am (EST) for improvements to the MIPS submission report. Please save all case data and log off by 11:45 pm (EST) on Friday, January 19 to avoid losing any data.

SSR updates will be moving from weekly to monthly, although we will reach out to you periodically with any time-sensitive information.  Please look for our next update in February, but feel free to reach out to us as needed with any questions at ssr@facs.org  or at 312-202-5408.

Thank you,

Your SSR Team
