NUMERATOR / DENOMINATOR
- DENOMINATOR: Number of unique patients seen by the Eligible Physician (EP) or other eligible professional during the EHR reporting period.
- NUMERATOR: Number of patients in the denominator who have a medication (or an indication that the patient is not currently prescribed any medication) recorded as structured data.
The resulting percentage (Numerator ÷ Denominator) must be more than 80 percent in order for an EP to meet this measure.
- For patients with no active medications, an entry must still be made to the active medication list indicating that there are no active medications.
- An EP is not required to update this list at every contact with the patient. The EP can then use his or her clinical judgment to decide when additional updating is required.
