Numerator

Unplanned return to the operating room for a surgical procedure, for any reason, within 30 days of the principal operative procedure

Numerator Instructions:

INVERSE MEASURE - A lower calculated performance rate for this measure indicates better clinical care or control. The “Performance Not Met” numerator option for this measure is the representation of the better clinical quality or control. Submitting that numerator option will produce a performance rate that trends closer to 0%, as quality increases. For inverse measures, a rate of 100% means all of the denominator eligible patients did not receive the appropriate care or were not in proper control.

NUMERATOR NOTE: This measure intent is to capture patients who go back to the operating room within 30 days for a follow-up procedure based on complications of the principal (denominator eligible) operative procedure. Examples: Breast biopsies (19101) with return for re-excisions or insertion of port-a-cath for chemotherapy would not be considered an unplanned return to the operating room for a surgical procedure. If this patient had an open, incisional biopsy of breast tissue (19101) and subsequently had an appendectomy performed this would not be considered an unplanned return to the operating room for a surgical procedure.

The return to the OR may occur at any hospital or surgical facility.

Numerator Options:

Performance Met: Unplanned return to the operating room for a surgical procedure, for complications of the principal operative procedure, within 30 days of the principal operative procedure (G9308)

OR

Performance Not Met: No return to the operating room for a surgical procedure for complications of the principal operative procedure within 30 days of the principal operative procedure (G9307)
