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.

CMS defines the performance period for eligible clinicians as the measure data capture period of the calendar year between January 1 and December 31. Eligible clinicians are to use the updated eCQMs to electronically report 2024 clinical quality measure data for CMS quality reporting programs.

Some of the eCQMs listed on the EC table are available for reporting in Traditional Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and some are available for reporting in MIPS Value Pathways (MVPs). For clinician reporting guidance, visit the Quality Payment Program website and the Quality Payment Program Resource Library.

Submit questions related to eCQM specifications, logic, data elements, standards, or resources in the eCQM Tracker - ONC Project Tracking System (Jira).
