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

Performance period for eligible clinicians is defined as the measure data capture period of the calendar year between January 1 and December 31. The updated eCQMs are to be used by eligible clinicians and eligible professionals to electronically report 2022 clinical quality measure data for CMS quality reporting programs. Measures will not be eligible for 2022 reporting unless and until they are proposed and finalized through notice-and-comment rulemaking for each applicable program.

CMS has updated eCQMs for potential inclusion in these programs:
