Each year, CMS updates the electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) for potential use in CMS quality reporting programs and publishes them on the eCQI Resource Center. CMS updates the specifications annually to align with current clinical guidelines and code systems so they remain relevant and actionable within the clinical care setting. CMS requires use of the most current version of the eCQMs as specified and intended for the applicable reporting periods for all quality reporting programs.

Questions related to eCQM specifications, logic, data elements, standards, or resources can be submitted in the eCQM Tracker - ONC Project Tracking System (Jira).
