ONC Project Tracking System (Jira)

Jira is a collaboration platform hosted by the HHS’s Office of National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) which supports the implementation of health information technology. It provides internal and external users with a common place to transparently log, prioritize, and discuss issues with appropriate subject matter experts on many topics. CMS uses Jira during most phases of the eCQM measure lifecycle, including development, implementation, and maintenance.
