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 the use of the most current version of the eCQMs as specified and intended for the applicable performance periods for all quality reporting programs.

The updated eCQMs are to be used by eligible clinicians to electronically report 2023 clinical quality measure data for CMS quality reporting programs. CMS defines the performance period for eligible clinicians as the measure data capture period of the calendar year between January 1 and December 31.

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