HARP is a secure identity management portal provided by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Creating an account via HARP provides users with a user ID and password that can be used to access many CMS applications. 

Create a HARP Account: https://harp.cms.gov/login/login 

At least two facility users should have EQRS access at all times.   

Enter your profile information for Experian identity proofing.
