Now Available: 2017 eCQM Logic Flows for Eligible Clinicians

CMS EHR Incentive ProgramThe Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (@CMSGov) have published the 2017 performance period electronic Clinical Quality Measure (eCQM) Logic Flows for MIPS Eligible Clinicians to the eCQI Resource Center and the eCQM Library. The eCQM Measure Logic Flows are designed to assist in interpretation of the eCQM logic and calculation methodology for performance rates. The flows begin with the identification of the initial population (denominator) for the measure, and then outlines the measure’s quality action (numerator) as well as reasons why the measure’s numerator was not met.

These flows are intended to be used as an additional resource when implementing eCQMs and should not be used in place of the measure specification.

Questions on the measure flows should be directed to the ONC CQM Issue Tracker. For more information about the Merit-based Incentive Payment System, please visit us online at the CMS website.
