The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released May 1 its update for the 2014 hospital electronic clinical quality measures (eCQM). Providers will use these updated measures to electronically report 2016 data for the following pay-for-performance programs:

  • Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs
  • Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) Program
  • Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS)

Measure specifications are updated annually to improve alignment with the latest clinical guidelines.
