The GRID Exam Data Upload File Specification and Data Element document, posted below, describes the file specification and each data element for exam-level data records used for capturing data for QCDR non-MIPS measures.
There are currently four file versions available:
1.0 - Original version
1.1 - Includes a Facility ID data element, to allow multiple facilities to be submitted within a single file.
1.2 - Includes a Facility ID data element and two new data elements, "Multiple readers" and "Place of service."
2.0 - Includes patient demographics, clinical focus and whether follow-up imaging is recommended or performed.
2.1 - Addition of Physician TIN.
We encourage sites to convert to Version 1.2 at their earliest convenience, particularly if participating in QCDR, as the new fields may impact QCDR measures in future performance years.
Consult GRID Data File Uploads for detailed instructions for creating a file of exam-level data for upload to the GRID.
Note: GRID version 2.1 was made available in December 2020, and only versions 2.0 and 2.1 are accepted at this time.
