CMS and the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) have released two additional draft Quality Measures under the Children’s Measures project for public comment. The draft measures are:

  1. Immunizations by 13 years of age - HPV
  2. Immunizations by 13 years of age - Meningococcus, Tetanus and Diptheria

The measures were released on AHRQ‘s USHIK website. USHIK (United States Health Information Knowledgebase) is funded and directed by AHRQ with management support and partnership from CMS and the CDC. You can provide feedback on the measures on USHIK’s website, which will be provided to CMS and ONC for review.
