eCQM Flows

The <span class="glossify-exclude"> electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) Flows </span> are flowcharts designed to assist in the interpretation of the eCQM logic and provide the calculation methodology to determine measure scores. These flows provide an overview of each of the population criteria components and associated data elements that lead to the inclusion, exclusion, or exception into the eCQM’s denominator and numerator, if applicable.

The eCQM flows are available for eligible clinician eCQMs, eligible hospital/critical access hospital eCQMs, and outpatient quality reporting eCQMs.
