Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has recently released proposed updates to quality of care measures for 2022. This update is set to align clinical quality measures (CQMs) with the versions of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) electronic-specified clinical quality measures (eCQMs) designated for the 2022 reporting period.
Data-driven quality improvement efforts and full optimization of electronic health record (EHR) systems are strategic priorities for the Health Center Program. Clinical performance measure alignment across national programs promotes data standardization and quality, while decreasing reporting burden.
Alignment of UDS CQMs with CMS eCQMs most notably pertains to the measures captured in UDS Tables 6B and 7.
