Percentage of patients aged 18 years and older with a diagnosis of COPD who had spirometry results documented
This measure is to be submitted a minimum of once per performance period using the most recent spirometry results in the patient record for all COPD patients seen during the performance period. Do not limit the search for spirometry results to the performance period. This measure may be submitted by eligible clinicians who perform the quality actions described in the measure based on the services provided and the measure-specific denominator coding.
NOTE: No notes related
The listed denominator criteria is used to identify the intended patient population. The numerator quality-data codes included in this specification are used to submit the quality actions allowed by the measure. All measure-specific coding should be submitted on the claim(s) representing the eligible encounter.
Patients with documented spirometry results in the medical record (FEV1 and FEV1/FVC)
Numerator Instructions: Look for most recent documentation of spirometry results in the medical record; do not limit the search to the performance period
