The 2015 annual update of the 2014 eCQM specifications are not available in USHIK. We hope to provide full functionality on this new data set soon. Please refer to the eCQI Resource Center
or to the CMS eCQM Library Page
for the most current measure specifications.
Please note: USHIK provides the specifications for all versions of eCQMs published by CMS for the Meaningful Use Incentive
Payment Program for a user to view and/or download. The release packages are referenced by the year it was released, i.e.
"April 2014 EH". Please note, each release package is applicable to the following year's reporting period, for example, the 2014
eCQMs for eligible hospitals titled, "April 2014 EH" is applicable to the 2015 Reporting Year. The only exception is the 2012 release
packages which are no longer valid for reporting purposes. Please refer to the CMS Implementation Guides as the source of truth for
which version of an eCQM is associated with which reporting year.
