Pre-rulemaking Eligible Hospital/Critical Access Hospital eCQMs

CMS pre-rulemaking eCQMs include measures that are developed, but specifications are not finalized for reporting in a CMS program. These measures will not be eligible for CMS quality reporting until they are proposed and finalized through notice-and-comment rulemaking for each applicable program.

Feedback on technical aspects of these eCQMs should be submitted to the Jira eCQM Issue Tracker.

Feedback on the potential use of these eCQMs in CMS quality programs is to be submitted during formal CMS public comment periods associated with the relevant proposed rules.
