How do I report eCQMs for Medicaid Meaningful Use?

Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs) enable providers to track various aspects of patient care in order to improve health outcomes.


CMS published changes to the Medicaid EHR Incentive program on August 14, 2017 under the Inpatient Prospective Payment System Final Rule, which goes into effect on October 1, 2017. Eligible professionals (EPs) are now required to report on any six (6) quality measures applicable to their scope of practice via Meaningful Use attestation or electronic submission. Additionally, EPs may select a CQM reporting period of any continuous 90-day period during the 2017 calendar year, regardless of their reporting method. Please be aware that program requirements may vary by state. You should contact your state Medicaid administrator to confirm your state’s requirements for the 2017 reporting year. 

 

Reporting CQMs under the Medicaid EHR Incentive program

Providers participating in the Medicaid EHR Incentive Program will submit their CQM data directly to their state. Each state is will share the details for electronic reporting and timelines with its provider community.
