Measure Description

Percentage of patients aged 18 years and older who had cataract surgery and had improvement in visual function achieved within 90 days following the cataract surgery, based on completing a pre-operative and post-operative visual function survey

Instructions

This measure is to be calculated when a procedure for cataracts is performed during the performance period. This measure is intended to reflect the quality of services provided for the patient receiving cataract surgery.

NOTE:

This is an outcome measure and will be calculated solely using registry data.

  • For patients who receive the cataract surgical procedures specified in the denominator coding, it should be submitted whether or not the patient had improvement in visual function achieved within 90 days following the cataract surgery.
  • Only procedures performed through September 30 of the performance period are eligible for the denominator. This will allow the post-operative period to occur before registries must submit data to CMS.
  • It is the responsibility of the registry, or a third party, to collate and score the surveys.

Measure Submission

The listed denominator criteria is used to identify the intended patient population. The numerator options included in this specification are used to submit the quality actions allowed by the measure. The quality-data codes listed do not need to be submitted for registry submissions; however, these codes may be submitted for those registries that utilize claims data.

“The doctor who is not using AdvancedMD right now, is wasting his time.”

“The best thing I ever did in private practice was getting AdvancedMD—it has liberated me.”

Estaban Lavato, MD
La Loma Medical Center

“[Our] patients are very well-educated and well-informed, and they want to see results quickly. The practice has to run extremely efficiently and be accessible to them. The nice thing about [AdvancedMD] is it has allowed me to be more efficient both in and out of the office. Now I don’t have to come back into the office, which is great for my family and everything else. It saves me a lot of time – probably an hour a day on the three days I work in the second office.”
