Invitation to Test the New CQL Standard for eCQMs

CMS is considering using the Clinical Quality Language (CQL) to represent electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) logic. CMS invites electronic health record (EHR) vendors and other implementers to participate in testing the new CQL standard for eCQMs by providing feedback related to implementation and evaluation of measures using CQL-based standards. Participation includes reviewing and/or implementing CQL-based measures and associated artifacts, and providing feedback on the utility. CMS invites participation by EHR vendors and implementers who can commit to testing support for the remainder of the testing phases (ending in Fall 2017).

Interested parties should send an email expressing interest (including vendor organization, name, and contact information for two staff) to cql-esac@esacinc.com.
