FAQ

[EHR Incentive Programs] For eligible hospitals and critical access hospitals (CAHs) under the Medicare and Medicaid Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Programs, will the clinical quality measure results be calculated similar to the Hospital Inpatient Quality Reporting (IQR) Program (Formerly known as Reporting Hospital Quality Data for Annual Payment Update program)?

No. For all clinical quality measures reported for the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs, the certified EHR must report the numerator, denominator, and exclusion results. Providers will report their aggregate results for clinical quality measures during attestation to CMS or the States.
