CMS: Review Draft Measure Packages for eCQM Used in CMS Quality Reporting ProgramsThe Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) invites health IT vendors and stakeholders to review and provide feedback on draft electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) packages that include logic and header changes for eCQMs under consideration for CMS quality reporting and payment programs. This opportunity allows CMS to learn from health IT vendors who have the technical capabilities to test the Health Quality Measures Format (HQMF) specifications by directly consuming machine readable Extensible Markup Language (XML) files for eCQMs. Testing will help CMS to identify instances in which XML code produces errors so that issues can be resolved prior to posting the fully specified measures this spring. 
The draft measure HyperText Markup Language (HTML) and XML formats are now available on thCQM Issue Tracker via the following tickets:
  • Eligible Hospital and Critical Access Hospital measures (CQM-2550)
  • Eligible Professional and Eligible Clinician measures (CQM-2551)
Please report questions and comments regarding the draft measure packages to the CQM Issue Tracker tickets listed above through March 28, 2017.
