Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs)

Hospital Reporting of Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs)

In partnership, CRISP and Medisolv, are working to support the HSCRC goal of collecting hospital reporting of eCQMs. A few hospitals started optional submission of the 2021 measures in the Spring of 2022. Moving forward Maryland Hospitals are required to submit 4 measures a quarter; with the first submission window opening in July 2022 for Q1 & Q2 2022. All data is being submitted in the Quality Reporting Document Architecture (QRDA) I format to Medisolv ENCOR portal via CRISP Portal. For 2023 and beyond, ED-2 and eOPI-1 are required while other required measures to be determined. While these measures align with federal IQR measures, it does not replace IQR Reporting.
