Electronic Clinical Quality Measure (eCQM) Concepts

The Measure Collaboration Workspace Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQM) Concepts module gives users the ability to search for eCQM concepts suggested by others and comment on those suggested eCQM concepts, submit new eCQM concepts, describe the population(s), and assign a care setting. There are hyperlinks to the CMS Measures Inventory Tool (CMIT) and the National Quality Forum's (NQF) Quality Positioning System (QPS) to help identify whether similar eCQMs already exist. Feedback provided through the eCQM Concepts Module can help guide a measure developer to refine the concept and purpose behind a new eCQM and develop detailed specifications to meet the needs of targeted quality measurement stakeholders.
