Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has awarded ESAC, Inc. a multiyear contract to support the electronic Clinical Quality Improvement initiative (eCQM).

CMS requires an agile, scalable and cost-effective approach for developing and distributing eCQMs and CDS interventions that will facilitate improved quality of care and produce accurate and reliable measurement across provider/hospital organizations and EHR platforms. This project will support the use and ongoing standards evolution for the capture and transmission of eCQMs for use in CMS’ quality reporting programs for eligible professionals and hospitals.

The primary purpose is to achieve updates for standards and evolution of these standards for eCQM reporting as well as harmonization and alignment for the electronic clinical improvement ecosystem related efforts for both eCQM and CDS. The other main purpose of this contract is to continue to support CMS’s efforts to provide an online, single location eCQI Resource Center. This includes information, education, and program web links related to eCQM topics, programs and reporting and submission information.
