Permission Agreement to Transfer Data—Deadline Extension (for current SSR users ONLY)

As we prepare to go live with the New SSR, part of that process involves migrating all of your historical data in the current SSR system over to the New SSR platform. To ensure a seamless transfer of your data in the current SSR system to the New SSR platform, we ask you to provide the ACS with permission to move your data to the New SSR platform (hosted by QuintilesIMS) from the current SSR system (hosted by Resilience Software Inc.).

The ACS has now extended the deadline for you to complete the Permission Agreement to Transfer Data. Please complete it at your earliest convenience and no later than Friday, May 5, 2017.

  5. Go to this email and click on the link in it to finalize your permission (Note: You may have to log-in again)

    Only if you have clicked on the link in this email will you have fully completed the Permission to Transfer Data Agreement.

Check If You Successfully Completed the Permission Agreement to Transfer Data

To confirm that you have successfully completed the Permission Agreement to Transfer Data, follow these quick steps:

  1. In your SSR account, go to "Permission to Transfer Data" page under the "Settings" menu tab.
  2. Under the "Choose an Option Below" section on the "Permission to Transfer Data" page, you will see the choice you made and the phrase "This choice has been confirmed through a separate email." This is the final step and if you see this then no further action is required on your part.

Additionally, if you used the SSR to participate in PQRS 2016, then please note that the Permission Agreement to Transfer Data is unrelated to your PQRS 2016 data submission; and your PQRS 2016 data will be submitted to CMS regardless of your action on this item. However, we highly recommend that all current SSR users agree to the data transfer so that all of your past data, including PQRS data, is transferred over to the New SSR system for your own archival purposes.

Please do not hesitate to contact the ACS SSR Team at should you have any questions.
