CMS Webinar on the Authoring of Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs) using the FHIR® Standard

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is hosting a webinar to highlight using the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources® (FHIR) framework in the specification of eCQMs. FHIR is the next generation standard for exchanging healthcare information electronically being adopted by the healthcare community to advance interoperability. CMS is exploring a potential transition to FHIR-based quality measurement and how it can support the sharing of standardized data electronically in clinical settings.

As part of continuing education and outreach for emerging standards, this webinar will be an intermediate-level session for clinical quality professionals seeking a detailed understanding of the use of FHIR for authoring eCQMs and for:

The presentation will focus on: 

  • Quality Improvement Core (QI-Core) for electronic clinical quality measures
  • QDM vs QI-Core
  • Specifying measures with QI-Core and Clinical Quality Language (CQL)
  • Quality measure specifications in FHIR
  • Next steps

Register here for the Authoring eCQMs using the FHIR Standard webinar taking place on April 15, 2021 at 2:00 PM ET. 

For a 101-level introduction, please review the FHIR 101 for Implementers webinar held in February 2021:
