[EHR Incentive Programs] If the denominators for all three of the core clinical quality measures are zero, do I have to report on the additional clinical quality measures for eligible professionals (EPs) under the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs?

If the denominator value for all three of the core clinical quality measures is zero, an EP must report a zero denominator for all such core measures, and then must also report on all 3 alternate core clinical quality measures. If the denominator values for all three of the alternate core clinical quality measures is also '0,' an EP still needs to report on 3 additional clinical quality measures. Zero is an acceptable denominator provided that this value was produced by certified EHR technology. Please see question number 10144 for a discussion of zero denominator reporting in the menu set.
