What are eCQMs?
This collection type involves the submission of statistics automatically tracked by RevolutionEHR: eCQMs. Clinicians reporting eCQMs do not need to select the measures they will report throughout the year as Medicare Part B claims-based reporters do. Instead, the measures that RevolutionEHR automatically tracks will be the measures the clinician reports. These measures can be found on the MIPS – Quality scorecard (Reports > Administration > Providers > MIPS – Quality).
- Diabetes: Eye Exam
- Closing the Referral Loop (high-priority measure)
- Documentation of Current Medications in the Medical Record (high-priority measure)
- Use of High-Risk Medications in Older Adults (high-priority measure)
- Cataracts: 20/40 or Better Visual Acuity within 90 Day Following Cataract Surgery (applicable to surgeons only) (outcome measure)
- POAG: Optic Nerve Evaluation
- Diabetic Retinopathy: Communication with the Physician Managing Ongoing Diabetes Care (high-priority measure)
*Outcome measures are awarded 2 bonus points if reported successfully
*High Priority measures are awarded 1 bonus point if reported successfully
Since eCQMs effectively report on near 100% of applicable patients, satisfying the ≥70% reporting frequency requirement is automatic via this method. Additionally, each measure submitted via this end-to-end electronic process entitles the clinician to 1 bonus point.
Submitting eCQMs for MIPS-Quality
To submit data via this method, the clinician exports a file of clinical quality measure scores from the MIPS – Quality scorecard and uploads it to Medicare within the early part of the year following the performance year. To accomplish the file upload, access to CMS’ Quality Payment Program portal is required. If you’ve reported this way in the past and kept your credentials active, you’ll be able to use those again this year. However, if they have expired due to inactivity or if you have never registered for access before you’ll need to follow a process to do so.
The HARP System
Fortunately, CMS has created a series of documents to help you with registration via the HARP system. At the end of that process, you’ll have a user ID and a password which will allow you access to the QPP system. Those documents can be found below and numbered in the order to be followed.
