The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has expanded the Electronic Clinical Quality Improvement (eCQI) Resource Center to include the Collaborative Measure Development (CMD) Workspace. The CMD Workspace brings together a set of interconnected resources, tools, and processes to promote clarity, transparency, and better interaction across stakeholder communities that develop, implement, and report electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs).


The CMD Workspace includes the Data Element Repository (DERep) which contains definitions for standardized eCQM data elements currently used in CMS quality and value-based programs and clearly presents data element definitions for all eCQMs used in CMS’s quality reporting programs. The DERep provides clarity for clinicians, quality measurement specialists, electronic health record (EHR) vendors, and information technology staff when representing and mapping data required for eCQMs used in these programs. All eCQMs for performance/reporting year 2019 are now available in the DERep.


CMS encourages users to explore the CMD Workspace and DERep. Join the interactive user-centered community and provide feedback at
