ECQMs 101: Getting Started

Even though eCQMs have been around for a while now and this is not the first year that eCQMs were required as a part of the IQR program, the eCQMs 101 webinar continued to be our most popular webinar. Perhaps this is a reflection of what we are seeing as an emerging trend.

Since eCQMs are becoming more of a focus for the Quality department, more people are interested in learning all that they can about them.
