Measure description

Patients aged 18 years and older who had surgery for primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment and achieved an improvement in their visual acuity, from their preoperative level, within 90 days of surgery in the operative eye

 

Instructions

This measure is to be calculated each time a procedure for primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment is performed during the performance period. This measure is intended to reflect the quality of services provided for the patient receiving primary rhegmatogenous retinal detachment surgery

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

  • For patients who receive the surgical procedures specified in the denominator coding, it should be submitted whether or not the patient achieved an improvement of their visual acuity within 90 days of surgery.
  • Include only procedures performed through September 30 of the performance period. This will allow the post- operative period to occur before registries must submit data to CMS.

Measure Submission:

The numerator options included in this specification are used to submit the quality actions allowed by the measure.
