A patient-reported outcome measure of risk-adjusted change in functional status (FS) for patients aged 14 years+ with general orthopedic impairments (neck, cranium, mandible, thoracic spine, ribs or other general orthopedic impairment). The change in FS is assessed using the General Orthopedic FS PROM (patient reported outcome measure) (©Focus on Therapeutic Outcomes, Inc.). The measure is adjusted to patient characteristics known to be associated with FS outcomes (risk adjusted) and used as a performance measure at the patient level, at the individual clinician, and at the clinic level to assess quality. The measure is available as a computer adaptive test, for reduced patient burden, or a short form (static survey)
This patient reported outcome measure is to be submitted once per treatment episode for all patients with a functional deficit related to the neck, cranium, mandible, thoracic spine, ribs or other general orthopedic impairment. This is a patient reported outcome measure and its calculation requires submitting of the patient’s functional status score, as a minimum, at admission to and again at discharge from an episode of rehabilitation. The admission score is recorded during the first rehabilitation treatment encounter, and the discharge score is recorded at or near the conclusion of the final rehabilitation treatment encounter. It is anticipated that Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) eligible clinicians providing treatment for functional neck, cranium, mandible, thoracic spine, ribs or other general orthopedic deficits will submit this measure.
The listed denominator criteria are used to identify the intended patient population. The numerator options included in this specification are used to submit the quality actions as allowed by the measure. The quality-data codes listed do not need to be submitted by MIPS eligible clinicians, groups, or third party intermediaries that utilize this modality for submissions; however, these codes may be submitted for those third party intermediaries that utilize Medicare Part B claims data.
Patients who had a lower extremity neurological exam performed at least once within 12 months
Lower Extremity Neurological Exam – Consists of a documented evaluation of motor and sensory abilities and should include: 10-g monofilament plus testing any one of the following: vibration using 128-Hz tuning fork, pinprick sensation, ankle reflexes, or vibration perception threshold, however the clinician should perform all necessary tests to make the proper evaluation.
Numerator Quality-Data Coding Options
Lower extremity neurological exam performed and documented (G8404)
Performance Not Met:
Lower extremity neurological exam not performed (G8405)
NUMERATOR NOTE: To determine performance met the lower extremity neurological exam could be performed and documented on the date of the denominator eligible encounter or within the 12-month lookback period from the date of the denominator eligible encounter.
Patients aged 18 and older with infrarenal non-ruptured endovascular AAA repairs
Denominator Criteria (Eligible Cases):
Patients aged ≥ 18 years on date of encounter
