NAACOS Continues to Express Concerns to CMS about Mandatory eCQMs

NAACOS has held numerous meetings this year with CMS as well as a recent meeting with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) to share ACO feedback and express concerns about aspects of the MSSP quality overhaul. Thanks to helpful ACO input from our recent quality surveys, we have emphasized areas of concern and impediments to shifting to mandatory quality reporting via electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) and Merit-based Incentive Payment System clinical quality measures (MIPS CQMs). We detailed our feedback in this document as well as our recommendation to delay implementation of mandatory eCQM and MIPS CQM reporting until a number of critical issues are resolved.
