Qualified Entity Certification Program (QECP) for Medicare Data

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' Qualified Entity Medicare Data Sharing Program makes Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) claims data and Part D prescription drug event data available to "qualified entities" (QEs) to produce publicly available provider performance reports. QEs are organizations deemed qualified to receive Medicare data to produce fair and reliable provider performance reports while ensuring beneficiary privacy and data security. The program aims to increase transparency in health care performance, provide information for employers and consumer groups to make more informed health care decisions, and spur innovation in performance measurement.The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services' Qualified Entity Medicare Data Sharing Program makes Medicare fee-for-service (FFS) claims data and Part D prescription drug event data available to "qualified entities" (QEs) to produce publicly available provider performance reports.
