Annual Updates
Each year, CMS makes updates to the electronic specifications of the Clinical Quality Measures approved for submission in CMS programs.

CMS strongly encourages the implementation and use of the updates to the electronic specifications of the CQMs finalized in the Stage 2 rule for the 2015 EHR Reporting Period since those updates include new codes, logic corrections and clarifications. 

For those attesting to CQMs to demonstrate meaningful use for the EHR Incentive Programs:

  • CMS will accept all versions of the CQMs through attestation, beginning with those finalized in the December 4, 2012 CMS-ONC Interim Final Rule.

For eReporting of eCQMs to demonstrate meaningful use or for Quality Reporting Programs:

  • An eligible professional must use the version of the eCQMs identified for each program year below.
