Clinical quality measure (CQM) owners and/or developers who want to have new measures considered for inclusion in one of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) quality programs may submit measures now.
On January 29, 2016, JIRA opened to accept new-candidate measure submissions for the 2016/2017 Measures Under Consideration (MUC) season. The data results collected from CQM implementation link to the provider’s ability to deliver an expected level of care. Submissions for the 2016/2017 MUC season close on July 15, 2016.
CMS encourages you to visit the Pre-Rule Making website for additional information about how to submit measures for the 2016/2017 MUC.
