Quality Payment Program Measures Data Repository
This repository hosts measures data for QPP and supports functionality to import measures data as an NPM module. All 2018 quality, PI (Promoting Interoperability, formerly ACI), and IA measures were added as of release 1.1.3. QCDR measures will be added later in 2018.
This is the v2 source of truth for QPP measures data. The previous measures data API is no longer available (qpp.cms.gov/api). The transition to using qpp-measures-data as a source of truth for CMS is ongoing and this data may be subject to modifications. Stability in the API contract for qpp-measures-data is prioritized but not guaranteed.
How to Use qpp-measures-data
Measures and benchmark data can be accessed by installing the
qpp-measures-data NPM repository.
The measures data JSON schema is described in
measures data here combines existing data from the QPP API, with supplementary data
util. To access measures data without installing the NPM repository,
git clone email@example.com:CMSgov/qpp-measures-data.git and navigate to
The benchmarks data JSON schema is described in
To access the benchmarks data without installing the NPM repository,
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:CMSgov/qpp-measures-data.git and
benchmarks/. Benchmarks data is organized by performance year.
benchmarks/2017.json contains the benchmarks for performance year 2017
(benchmark year 2015).
$YEAR refers to the performance year. For measures data, providing a $YEAR is optional. If omitted, it defaults to 2017.
Importing the qpp-measures-data module
Functions take a string version argument and return the appropriate YAML schema or JSON data. The module can be used with the following pattern:
const qppMeasuresData = require('qpp-measures-data'); const measuresData = qppMeasuresData.getMeasuresData($YEAR); const measuresSchema = qppMeasuresData.getMeasuresSchema($YEAR); const benchmarksData = qppMeasuresData.getBenchmarksData(); const benchmarkData$YEAR = benchmarksData[$YEAR]; const benchmarksSchema = qppMeasuresData.getBenchmarksSchema();
