The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services has posted updated clinical quality measures for eligible professionals under the 2014 Edition of the electronic health records meaningful use program. Supporting guidance is available here.

Starting in 2014, the CQMs will be used for multiple reporting programs including the Physician Quality Reporting System, with the measures aligned for meaningful use, as well. “Because measure specifications may need to be updated more frequently than our expected rulemaking cycle will allow for, this table provides updates to the specifications,” CMS notes in the 28-page document. “Subsequent updates will be provided in a new version of this table at least six months prior to the beginning of the calendar year for which the measures will be required, and CMS will maintain and publish an archive of each update.”
