Update: Electronic Clinical
Starting in Program Year 2018, you will upload electronic
Clinical Quality Measure (eCQM) data to the Clinical Quality Metrics Registry
we discussed in the Program
Year 2018 webinar, you will upload eCQM data to the CQMR either as QRDA III
files or using an Excel template. Although you will continue to use MAPIR for
the rest of the attestation, you will no longer manually enter eCQMs into
MAPIR. A complete attestation includes submissions to both MAPIR and the CQMR.
Both portions of the attestation must be submitted by April 30, 2019.
ensure you are ready to upload your eCQMs when you attest, please begin the
onboarding process to the CQMR. Onboarding involves registering for a
OneHealthPort account; completing legal agreements; and reviewing training
materials. You can find details on our onboarding page. Webinars, coming in early 2019,
will provide more information on using the system.
