The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) recently posted the electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) annual update for the 2019 reporting period for eligible professionals (EPs) and eligible clinicians. Measures will not be eligible for 2019 reporting unless and until they are proposed and finalized through notice-and-comment rulemaking. These updated eCQMs are to be used to electronically report 2019 CQM data for the Quality Payment Program (QPP).
CMS encourages stakeholders to submit questions and comments regarding the updated measures via the eCQM Issue Tracker. To learn more about 2019 eCQM annual update, click here. To learn more about eCQMs, visit the eCQI Resource Center.
