Eligible Hospital / Critical Access Hospital eCQMs
Select Reporting Period:
Each year, CMS updates the eCQMs for potential use in CMS quality reporting programs and publishes them on the eCQI Resource Center. CMS updates the specifications annually to align with current clinical guidelines and code systems so they remain relevant and actionable within the clinical care setting. CMS requires the use of the most current version of the eCQMs for the applicable reporting periods for all quality reporting programs.
The updated eCQMs are to be used by eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals to electronically report 2021 clinical quality measure data for CMS quality reporting programs. Measures will not be eligible for 2021 reporting unless and until they are proposed and finalized through notice-and-comment rulemaking for each applicable program.
