Developer tools for the Quality Payment Program allow industry developers who build software for participating clinicians to integrate their software directly with CMS applications and data.
The following tools are available:
- Submissions Application Programming Interface (API)
- Measures, Activities, and Benchmarks Repository
- Submissions Schemas
- QRDA III Conversion Tool Open Source Package
Submissions Application Programming Interface (API)
When you report data via the API, CMS will provide immediate, clear, and actionable feedback. By providing immediate feedback, the API enables customers to be confident that they reported their data successfully. The API will also return the preliminary composite score for your submission.View the API documentation

Easily import Quality Payment Program measures and benchmarks into your codebase as a node package. Includes all Promoting Interoperability (formerly Advancing Care Information), Quality measures, Improvement Activities, as well as historical benchmarks for the 2017 performance year.View the Repository

QRDA III Conversion Tool Open Source Package
CMS has released an open source tool for converting QRDA III files to QPP JSON for submission to the Quality Payment Program. Using this tool, developers can test their ability to create a QRDA III file that can be successfully converted to the QPP JSON format used by the Quality Payment Program.
You can use this tool to convert your QRDA III files to QPP JSON files before you submit them.View the Conversion Tool
There is a Google Group where developers can interact with one another to ask questions, find answers, leave feedback and share experiences using these tools. Developers who are unable to find answers using the Google Group, or who have questions related to policy, should contact the Quality Payment Program Service Center.Join the Google Group
