eCQM Implementation Checklist

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) requires an eligible professional (EP), eligible clinician, eligible hospital (EH) or critical access hospital (CAH) to use the most current version of the eCQMs for quality reporting programs.

The Preparation and Implementation Checklists assume that a health care practice/organization has determined which measures to report on. It provides the necessary technical steps health information technology (IT) developers, implementers and health care organizations must take to update their systems and processes with the eCQM Annual Update for the upcoming reporting and performance periods. The most recent eCQM Annual Update should be applied to your system for use in CMS electronic quality reporting.
