The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has posted its annual update of 2014 electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) for eligible hospitals and eligible professionals. There are 29 updated measures for EHs and 64 updated measures for EPs.

Eight of the 64 EP measures are episode-of-care measures, as are all of the 29 EH measures. Episode-of-care measures evaluate the care during a patient-provider encounter—called an episode of care—and assign the episode of care to one or more populations. However, the vast majority of the EP eCQMs are patient-based measures, which evaluate the care of a patient and assign the patient to membership in one or more populations.
