Clinical Quality Measures - EHR Program

CMS has Added a New Webpage on CQMs to the EHR Website

CMS has created a new page of the EHR website dedicated to the clinical quality measures (CQMs) and their role in the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs. The page intends to help providers better understand the purpose of CQMs and how to report on the measures.

The new CQM page of the website includes information on the following topics:

  • General program definitions, like “Reporting Period”
  • Eligible professional (EP) CQM reporting requirements
  • Eligible hospital and critical access hospital (CAH) CQM reporting requirements
  • Information on the CQM Pilot Program
  • Resources and additional information on CQMs

You can also find helpful CQM resources on the new page, including the Guide to CQMs and a webinar video that provides an overview of the measures.

Also be sure to review the CQM EP Reporting Table and the CQM Eligible Hospital and CAH Reporting Table. Each document lists the CQMs for the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs for 2011-2012.
