Measure Description

Percentage of patients aged 18 years and older with a diagnosis of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) or an acute leukemia who had baseline cytogenetic testing performed on bone marrow

Instructions

This measure is to be submitted a minimum of once per performance period for all myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and Acute Leukemia patients seen during the performance period, regardless of when MDS or Acute Leukemia diagnosis was made; the quality action being measured is that baseline cytogenetic testing on bone marrow was performed for each patient with MDS or Acute Leukemia at the time of diagnosis or prior to initiating treatment. It is anticipated that eligible clinicians who provide services for patients with the diagnosis of myelodysplastic syndromes or an acute leukemia (not in remission) will submit this measure.
