Each year, CMS updates the electronic clinical quality measures (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 as specified and intended for the applicable reporting periods for all quality reporting programs.

Eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals are to use the updated eCQMs to electronically report 2025 clinical quality measure data for CMS quality reporting programs. 

For hospital inpatient reporting guidance, visit QualityNet and the Quality Reporting Center for specific program reporting education.

For information about the Medicare Promoting Interoperability Program, refer to the CMS Promoting Interoperability Program webpage.

Submit questions related to the eCQM specifications, logic, data elements, standards, or resources in the eCQM Issue Tracker - ONC Project Tracking System (Jira).
