FAQ

[EHR Incentive Programs] Can eligible professionals (EPs) use clinical quality measures from the alternate core set to meet the requirement of reporting three additional measures for the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs?

No, if EPs report data on all three clinical quality measures from the core set, they would not report on any from the alternate core set. The three additional clinical quality measures must come from Table 6 of the final rule (75 FR 44398-44408), excluding those clinical quality measures included in either the core set or the alternate core set.
