Pre-rulemaking Eligible Hospital/Critical Access Hospital eCQMs

CMS pre-rulemaking electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) are developed, but specifications are not finalized for use in a CMS quality reporting program. These measures will not be eligible for CMS quality reporting until they are proposed and finalized through notice-and-comment rulemaking for each applicable program.

Feedback on technical aspects of these eCQMs should be submitted to the ONC Project Tracking System (Jira) eCQM Issue Tracker.

Feedback on the potential use of these eCQMs in CMS quality programs is to be submitted during formal CMS public comment periods associated with the relevant proposed rules.

In the FY 2022 Inpatient prospective payment system (IPPS) final rule CMS finalized the adoption of two medication-related adverse event eCQMs beginning with the CY 2023 reporting period/FY 2025 payment determination; Hospital Harm-Severe Hypoglycemia and Hospital Harm-Severe Hyperglycemia).
