Clinical Quality Measures
Measure Description: Percentage of patients 18-85 years of age who had a diagnosis of hypertension and whose blood pressure was adequately controlled (<140/90mmHg) during the measurement period
Denominator: Patients 18-85 years of age who had a diagnosis of essential hypertension within the first six months of the measurement period or any time prior to the measurement period
Numerator: Patients whose blood pressure at the most recent visit is adequately controlled (systolic blood pressure < 140 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure < 90 mmHg) during the measurement period
Measure Calculation in ChARM EHR: AUTOMATIC
This measure is automatically calculated in ChARM EHR based on the BP recorded in the Vitals section.
To satisfy this measure, for patient with Age >= 18 and < 85 years with an active diagnosis of “Essential Hypertension” (Example ICD 10 codes : I10 ), take appropriate clinical measures to keep the BP under control (Systolic less than 140 mmHg and Diastolic less than 90 mmHg).
Patients will be automatically excluded if they satisfy anyone of the below conditions
In addition, you can manually exclude a patient from denominator, based on other conditions listed below under 'Encounter > MU' section.
