Percentage of radical prostatectomy pathology reports that include the pT category, the pN category, the Gleason score and a statement about margin status
This measure is to be submitted each time a radical prostatectomy surgical pathology examination is performed during the performance period for prostate patients. Each unique CPT Category I code or quality-data code submitted on the claim will be counted for denominator inclusion. It is anticipated that eligible clinicians who examine prostate tissue specimens following resection in a laboratory or institution will submit this measure. If the specimen is not primary prostate tissue (e.g., breast, lung), submit only G8798.

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.
