Measure description

Percentage of patient visits for patients aged 21 years and older with a diagnosis of osteoarthritis (OA)with assessment for function and pain

 

Instructions

This measure is to be submitted one time during the performance period for patients with osteoarthritisseen during the performance period. The assessment can be completed either during a denominator eligible encounter or via electronic/mobile system. 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 denominatorcoding.

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.
