Electronic Clinical Quality Measures

Electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) are measures specified in a standard electronic format that use data electronically extracted from electronic health records (EHR) and/or health information technology (IT) systems to measure the quality of health care provided. The eCQMs used by 91㽶Ƶ are updated on an annual basis to account for changes in clinical evidence, measure logic, and coding updates. 91㽶Ƶ maintains close alignment with CMS measures where possible and continues to advance eCQM development to drive quality improvement. The following sections provides links to eCQM specifications used by 91㽶Ƶ and access to support resources.
