CMS has made available a list of quality and efficiency measures being considered for adoption in 2012 under the ACA’s pre-rulemaking process for such measures. CMS lists 366 measures under consideration – more than one-third of which would be used in the Physician Quality Reporting System, while others would be used for a variety of other Medicare payment systems and the Medicare and Medicaid EHR Incentive Programs. Note that because the ACA requires CMS to release measures suggested for adoption by the public, “it is a much larger list than will ultimately be adopted for optional or mandatory reporting programs” administered by CMS. Under the ACA pre-rulemaking process, stakeholders may provide input on the list until February 1, 2012.
