2017 Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQM) Annual Update
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) posted the 2017 annual update for Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs) for CY 2018 reporting. These updated eCQMs are fully specified and will not be eligible for 2018 reporting unless and until they are proposed and finalized through notice-and-comment rulemaking for each applicable program. The updated measure specifications are available on the Electronic Clinical Quality Improvement (eCQI) Resource Center for Eligible Hospitals and Critical Access Hospitals and Eligible Professionals and Eligible Clinicians.
ONC will update its health IT certification program to reflect testing of the latest eCQM versions. For questions and comments regarding the updated measures, visit the ONC CQM Issue Tracker.
