The GRID Exam Data Upload File describes the file specification and each element for exam-level data records used for capturing data for QCDR non-MIPS measures. 

There are two file versions available, version 1.0 and 1.1. Version 1.1 includes a Facility ID data element, to allow multiple facilities to be submitted within a single file.

Note: The Facility ID is optional; in the event the field is left blank, data will be uploaded to the current facility selected in the facility picker, in the upper right corner of the portal.


The GRID Exam-Level Data Elements document lists each data element available for collecting the data necessary for calculating QCDR non-MIPS measures in the GRID. 

Consult GRID Data File Uploads for detailed instructions for creating a file of exam-level data for upload to the GRID.
