Deadline to Submit Electronic Clinical Quality Measure Data Extended

The deadline for Medicare-eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals to submit attestation and electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) data has been extended to 11:59 p.m. (PT) on March 16. Hospitals participating in the hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting or Electronic Health Record Incentive (EHR) programs must submit data for at least four of the 15 eCQMs from one self-selected quarter of calendar year 2017.

Medicare and dually eligible hospitals participating in the EHR Incentive Program must submit data through the QualityNet Secure Portal. Medicaid-eligible hospitals should contact their state Medicaid agencies for information on how to attest.
