Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs) Library for 2019
eCQM Policies for Performance Year 2019
The 2019 Physician Fee Schedule (PFS) Final Rule established that in 2019, Medicaid EPs who are returning participants must report on a one year eCQM reporting period, and first-time meaningful users must report on a 90-day eCQM reporting period.
EPs are required to report on any six eCQMs related to their scope of practice. (New 2019) In addition, Medicaid EPs are required to report on at least one outcome measure. If no outcome measures are relevant to that EP, they must report on at least one high-priority measure. If there are no outcome or high priority measures relevant to an EP’s scope of practice, they must report on any six relevant measures.
Please Note: Reporting zero over zero (0/0) is not an allowable representation of an Outcome measure or a High-Priority Measure. Numerators and Denominators should be positive numbers. To see/download the list of CMS Outcome measures, please click here.
The list of available eCQMs for EPs in 2019 is aligned with the list of eCQMs available for Eligible Clinicians under MIPS in 2019. Those eCQMs can be found at https://ecqi.healthit.gov/eligible-professional-eligible-clinician-ecqms.
