Binding Parameter Specification (BPS)

eCQM Tools

The value set Binding Parameter Specification (BPS) is generated by the National Libray of Medicine(NLM).  It is a record of the value set metadata information that defines the value set code lists specified by published CMS eCQMs. Measure implementers and vendors can use the BPS to track versions and other parameters that define the value set code lists for each eCQM release. The BPS contains the same information as its predecessor, the discontinued Data Element Catalog (DEC), as well as additional parameters. Users can access the BPS metadata file, for any released set of CMS eCQM value set files, through the NLM's Value Set Authority Center Downloadable Resources.
