CMS Hosts Webinar on Preventive Care and Screening eCQMs

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) will host a webinar on January 15, 2019 from 1 to 2 pm EST providing an in-depth review of the Preventive Care and Screening electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs). CMS has transitioned the logic used in eCQMs from the previous quality data model logic expression language to Clinical Quality Language (CQL) for the 2019 performance period. This session will provide an introduction to the top reported Preventive Care and Screening measures and address terminology and value set changes for the 2019 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Quality performance period. Register for the webinar here.

At the end of this Preventive Care and Screening session, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the new CQL expression language for Preventive Care and Screening eCQMs
  • Address the most frequently asked questions and answers for each eCQM and how to follow ongoing information about each measure
  • Learn about changes to these eCQMs for 2019 MIPS reporting
