CMS Publishes Updated eCQM Table for Eligible Clinicians and Eligible Professionals for 2017 Performance Period

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has published an updated table accompanying the 2016 electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) specifications (published in April 2016) for the 2017 performance period. The updated table, titled Electronic Clinical Quality Measures for Eligible Professionals and Eligible Clinicians can be found on the eCQM Library Page and the Electronic Clinical Quality Improvement (eCQI) Resource Center.

 

This update removes the previous meaningful use domains and now aligns with the domains listed in the Calendar Year 2016 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule, as well as the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Advanced Alternative Payment Model (APM) tracks of the Quality Payment Program.

 

Questions regarding the measure table or domains should be reported to the ONC CQM Issue Tracker available at http://jira.oncprojectracking.org/browse/CQM/.
