Welcome to CMIT

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Measures Inventory Tool (CMIT) is the repository of record for information about the measures CMS uses to promote healthcare quality and quality improvement. CMS and its partners use CMIT to inform stakeholders, manage its measures portfolio, and guide measure development.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) publishes the CMS Quality Measures Inventory to comply with Section 3014 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA), which created sections 1890A of the Social Security Act and requires the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to develop a process for dissemination of quality measures. CMS publicly posts a list of quality measures used within CMS programs bi-annually.

The CMS Quality Measures Inventory consists of measures in CMS programs that are subject to the rule-making process and have been proposed, finalized, implemented, or removed per their respective Federal Rule. Measures used in programs and initiatives that do not undergo the rule-making process are collected as they become available. The inventory lists each measure by program and provides measure specifications including, but not limited to, numerator, denominator, exclusion criteria, healthcare priorities, measure type, and National Quality Forum (NQF) endorsement status. In addition, the CMS Quality Measures Inventory is regularly updated using Measure Specification Manuals and validated by CMS Program and Measure Leads.
