The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) is hosting a webinar titled “Eligible Clinician New eCQMs Finalized for 2019” on March 11, 2019. This one-hour session will provide an in-depth review of the following new electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) finalized for the 2019 performance period: HIV Screening (CMS349) and Appropriate Use of DXA Scans in Women Under 65 Years Who Do Not Meet the Risk Factor Profile for Osteoporotic Fracture (CMS249). CMS has transitioned the logic used in eCQMs from the previous quality data model (QDM) logic expression language to Clinical Quality Language (CQL) for the 2019 performance year. This session will provide an introduction to the new eCQMs finalized for 2019 Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Quality performance year. As a result of the feedback received from stakeholders interviewed through the CMS eCQM Strategy Project to reduce implementation and reporting burdens, this session is intended to prepare eligible clinicians, vendors, quality, and health information technology staff for eCQM reporting, and is the last in a series of five educational sessions to provide relevant information to support successful understanding, interpretation, and implementation of eCQMs.

At the end of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Become familiar with the specifications for new eCQMs for the MIPS 2019 performance year
  • Understand the intent of each of these new measures
  • Address the anticipated questions and answers for each eCQM and how to follow ongoing information about each measure
