Clinical Quality Measures
EPs in their first year of MU Stage 1 must attest to 9 CQMs of the 64 available found in the Stage 2 Final Rule, and cover 3 of 6 National Quality Domains, and do this for the full calendar year of 2015 (January 1 - December 31, 2015).
EPs in their second year of MU Stage 1 have two options for meeting CQM reporting requirements:
Option 1: EPs may attest to 9 CQMs covering 3 of the 6 National Quality Domains of the 64 available CQMs found in the Stage 2 Final Rule for the full year of CY15 (January 1, 2015 - December 31st, 2015.)
Per the 2015 PFS Final Rule, EPs may electronically report patient level data using 2014 CEHRT in a manner consistent with the PQRS Individual EHR Reporting or Group EHR Reporting (GPRO) programs for 9 CQMs covering 3 of the 6 National Quality Domains of the 64 available CQMs found in the Meaningful Use Stage 2 Final Rule.
EPs successfully reporting and meeting all other Meaningful Use and PQRS requirements may enter one submission to meet the CQM requirement for both programs.
For this option, CQM Data will be publicly reported on www.PhysicianCompare.gov.
