For a very good explanation of eCQMs and much of the terminology surrounding them the following document from CMS was a valuable read: https://www.cms.gov/files/document/blueprint-ecqm-specifications-testing-standards-tools-community.pdf (Accessed on March 23, 2022).

Found the implementation and requirements guide here: https://ecqi.healthit.gov/sites/default/files/2022-CMS-QRDA-III-Eligible-Clinicians-and-EP-IG-V1.1-508.pdf
