CMS, AHRQ, and ONC Integrate eCQI Resource Center with USHIK

CMS seeks public and stakeholder input on Section 101 of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA).   MACRA repeals the Medicare sustainable growth rate (SGR) methodology for updates to the physician fee schedule (PFS) and replaces it with a new Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).

Conference Announcement: Leveraging Patient-Centered Clinical Decision Support: Addressing the National Opioid Crisis and Beyond

On October 15, 2018, the Patient Centered Clinical Decision Support Learning Network (PCCDS-LN) is hosting a one-day conference to bring together diverse stakeholders to learn about and discuss key issues in drafting a National Opioid Action Plan. They will also set an agenda for developing, disseminating, and applying PCCDS in other domains. They invite you to please join them for this exciting event!

Education Space added to the eCQI Resource Center

Version 1.4.4 adds initial support for two new features, being released early in beta. These features are still in development and may not include all of the expected functionality. The goal for providing early access to these features is to gather feedback based on direct user experiences and use that feedback to ensure that the final versions of these features are as useful as possible.
