New ONC Requirement: National Plan & Provider Enumeration System
The Office of the National Coordinator (ONC) for Health Information Technology and Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) now mandates a centralized directory of provider electronic addresses for data exchange. The National Plan & Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) will serve as a resource to make digital contact information searchable and publicly available and to advance national goals for promoting interoperability.
We strongly encourage you to add your direct messaging address to your NPPES record as soon as possible. Please log in to make those changes at https://nppes.cms.hhs.gov/#/
Providers who fail to do so may be subject to public reporting and unable to meet “information blocking” statements required for Promoting Interoperability Program attestations for MIPS and Medicaid.
