2020 Promoting Interoperability
For all returning participants, the EHR reporting period is a minimum of any continuous 90 days between January 1, and December 31, 2020, for Medicaid Promoting Interoperability measures. Medicaid EP participants must report on any continuous 90 days of electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQM). EPs are required to report on any six eCQMs related to their scope of practice. In addition, Medicaid EPs are required to report on at least one outcome measure. If no outcome measures are relevant to that EP, they must report on at least one high-priority measure. If there are no outcome or high priority measures relevant to an EPs scope of practice, they must report on any six relevant measures.
The Stage 3 specification sheets for Program Year 2020 can be found here.
The list of available eCQMs for EPs in 2020 is aligned with the list of eCQMs available for Eligible Clinicians under MIPS in 2020. Those eCQMs can be found here.
Electronic Clinical Quality Measures are expected to be reported by using a QRDA-III file for 2020. If EPs are unable to obtain a QRDA-III file due to vendor or cost related issues, manual entry of eCQMs is available on the Kentucky Medicaid attestation site.
All providers must attest to Stage 3 objectives and measures using 2015 Certified EHR Technology (CEHRT).
