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

SSR Users Updates: December 22

Dear SSR Participants,

The Quality Data Platform update conducted on Saturday, December 16 inadvertently removed the “Save & New” and “Save & Duplicate” case form functions. These functions have now been restored in the case form, and we apologize for any inconvenience this situation may have caused.

As a reminder, we are approaching the end of the MIPS 2017 performance year, but there is still time to avoid a 4 percent cut to your Medicare payments in 2019 by participating in the Surgeon Specific Registry (SSR). 

Failure to submit any data in 2017 will result in a 4 percent penalty in your Medicare Part B payments in 2019. The deadline to submit any MIPS 2017 data through the SSR is Wednesday, January 31. Please visit the SSR MIPS Resources and Education page to learn how the SSR can help you meet reporting requirements. 

If you have questions, please reach out to us at ssr@facs.org or 312-202-5408. Please note the ACS will be closed for the Christmas holiday on Monday, December 25 and Tuesday, December 26. Tech Support also will unavailable on those dates. We wish you a happy holiday season.

Thank you,

Your SSR Team
