Submit a measure proposal by June 28, 2019. Proposals submitted by the deadline will be considered for inclusion in future rulemaking.

CMS is interested in adding measures that: build on the advanced use of certified electronic health records technology using 2015 Edition Certification Standards and Criteria; promote interoperability and health information exchange; improve program efficiency, effectiveness, and flexibility; provide patient access to their health information; reduce clinician burden; and align with the Merit-based Incentive Performance System Promoting Interoperability Performance Category.
