Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs) are tools that help measure and track the quality of healthcare services that eligible professionals (EPs), eligible hospitals, and critical access hospitals (CAHs) provide. Measuring and reporting CQMs helps to ensure that our health care system is delivering effective, safe, efficient, patient-centered, equitable, and timely care. CQMs measure many aspects of patient care, including:

  • Patient and Family Engagement
  • Patient Safety
  • Care Coordination
  • Population/Public Health
  • Efficient Use of Healthcare Resources
  • Clinical Process/Effectiveness

Promoting Interoperability (PI) Programs

To participate in the PI Programs (formerly named the EHR Incentive Programs), health care providers are required to submit CQM data from certified electronic health record (EHR) technology.
