eCQM Issue Tracker
The electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) Issue Tracker provides a public place for the eCQM community to submit questions and issues related to eCQM specifications.
Reminder: Do not include any Protected Health Information (PHI) in the ONC Project Tracking System.
Change Review Process (CRP)
The Change Review Process (CRP) provides electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) users the opportunity to review and comment on draft changes to the eCQM specifications and supporting resources under consideration by the measure steward. The goal of the CRP is for eCQM implementers to comment on the potential impact of draft changes to eCQMs so CMS and measure stewards can make improvements to meet CMS’s intent of minimizing provider and vendor burden in the collection, capture, calculation, and reporting of eCQMs. The CRP is conducted through the ONC Project Tracking System eCQM Issue Tracker.
To learn more about CRP, please review the CRP Participant User Guide posted on CQM-5626. To subscribe to the weekly CRP digest, please email CRP@mathematica-mpr.com.
The public comment period for the following CRP issues is now closed.
