Measures will not be eligible for 2019 reporting unless and until they are proposed and finalized through notice-and-comment rulemaking for each applicable program.

Each year, CMS makes updates to the eCQMs adopted for submission in CMS programs. CMS requires the use of updated eCQMs for all its quality programs because they include updated codes, logic corrections, and clarifications. Reporting eCQMinfo-icon data to CMS quality programs requires that an eligible professionalinfo-icon or eligible clinicianinfo-icon use the most current version of the eCQMs identified below for the applicable performance period. Performance period for eligible clinicians is defined as the measure data capture period of the calendar year between January 1 and December 31.

In addition, CMS may publish addenda to the eCQM updates.  The addenda provide updates to the codes used in value setsinfo-icon based on code systeminfo-icon changes.

CMS has updated eCQMs for potential inclusion in these programs
