HIMSS Topical Review: CMS EHR Incentive Program Stage 2 Final Rule Rulemaking - Eligible Professionals Clinical Quality Measures and Reporting

In FY/CY 2013, if an EP, EH, or CAH seeks to use EHR technology certified only to the 2014 Edition EHR certification criteria for reporting CQMs, they can only report those CQMs that are included in both the Stage 1 and Stage 2 final rules. For EPs, this would exclude the option of reporting NQF 0013, 0027, 0084 from the CQMs in the Stage 1 final rule. Since NQF 0013 is a core CQM in the Stage 1 final rule, EPs would select one of the alternate core CQMs to replace it.
