  • Look specifically at the Clinical Quality Measures reporting requirements
  • Recommended next steps
what was changed
What Was Changed?

Changes based on 2000+ Comments

Fewer requirements (20 vs. 25 for EP’s)

Percentages required for meeting compliance lowered

More clarity for some of the rules
