Reporting Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs) is an EHR Modified Stage 2 requirement. CQMs are tools used to measure and track the quality of healthcare services.

Open Dental reports on 9 CQMs. These CQMs were chosen for certification because they cover at least 3 National Quality Strategy (NQS) domains, focus on high-priority health conditions and best-practices for care delivery, and are applicable to dental providers.


For specific denominator and numerator logic for each CQM, see EHR Clinical Quality Measure Descriptions.

Some CQMs use specific code systems in calculations. To download coding systems and see which codes are used in CQMs, see Importing Coding Systems.
