Has Your Hospice Registered for the User IDs Required to Submit HIS Data?

In order to submit the Hospice Item Set (HIS) admission records and HIS discharge records, hospice providers must register for a CMSNet User ID and a QIES User ID. The CMSNet User ID and the QIES User IDs are essential for the successful submission of HIS data beginning July 1, 2014. The online self – registration application for the CMSNet User ID is available on the CMSNet Information web page. If you have questions while registering for the CMSNet User ID, contact the CMSNet Help Desk at 888-238-2122 or mdcn.mco@palmettogba.com.

Once successfully logged into the CMS network, providers will access the CMS QIES Systems for Providers – Hospice Welcome web page and the Hospice User Registration application link. By selecting the Hospice User Registration link, users will self – register for a QIES User ID. If you have questions while registering for the QIES User ID, contact the QTSO Help Desk at 877-201-4721 or help@qtso.com.

You are encouraged to review the Hospice technical training modules 1 (CMSNet User ID Registration Process) through 3 (QIES User ID Registration Process) prior to registering for the CMSNet and QIES User IDs. The recorded training modules are available on the QTSO website.
