Providers are enabled to track the various factors related to patient care using electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs). It is required of all providers to report on the necessary number of eCQMs for meeting the program needs.
eCQMs are classified under any one of six National Quality Strategy areas as given below:
- Efficient use of the healthcare resources
- Patient safety
- Patient and family engagement
- Clinical processes and effectiveness
- Care coordination
- Population and public health
Requirements of Reporting
From the year 2015, practices are required to attest 9 eCQMs which will cover a minimum of 3 out of 6 NQS areas. Practices have the choice of submitting electronically a full year's data of eCQMs; they are enabled to download data from 75Health that they can upload to the Enterprise Identity Management (EIDM) portal. Practices may choose to submit eCQM data manually for the reporting period during their attestation to the CMS.

Reporting eCQMs for Medicaid program
Providers who participate in the Medicaid incentive program have to submit their eCQM data to their state directly. Each state shares the details with its provider community for electronic reporting as well as timelines.
