The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) have integrated the eCQI Resource Center with United States Health Information Knowledgebase (USHIK).

USHIK is a publicly available database with technical measures and specifications for calculating quality metrics established for federal payment reimbursements.

The recent integration allows users to compare different versions and metadata of electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs). Users can also download measure version details in several file formats for use in different software programs.

Links to this new functionality are found in the measure tables within the Eligible Hospitals and Eligible Professionals pages on the eCQI Resource Center website: https://ecqi.healthit.gov/
