Hospital eCQM reporting
March 11, 2021
10 Minute Read
- CMS requires hospitals to report electronic clinical quality measures (eCQM), which track quality data generated by certified electronic health record technology (CEHRT).
- Eligible Hospitals (EHs) and Critical Access Hospitals (CAHs) must report eCQM data year-over-year as one component of participation in the Promoting Interoperability (PI) program.
- Successful eCQM reporting for the hospital PI program also counts toward the eCQM reporting component of the Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) program.
- If hospitals fail to satisfy annual PI or IQR reporting requirements, they may face hefty Medicare penalties.
