Measure Calculation in ChARM EHR: AUTOMATIC and MANUAL
This measure is calculated based on the BMI recorded in the Vitals section and interventions performed if the BMI is outside the normal range.
To satisfy this measure, for all patients with Age >= 18 years, record Weight and Height in the Vitals section. If the patient is overweight (BMI >= 25) or underweight (BMI<18.5) perform additional interventions as listed below and record them under 'Encounter > MU' section.
Denominator Exclusion: Patients will be automatically excluded if Patient has Diagnosis 'Pregnancy Dx' (Sample ICD10 codes : O00.00, O00.201, O10.213)
In addition, patients will be manually excluded based on the other conditions listed below in 'Encounter > MU' section.
Denominator Exception: You can manually exempt a patient from denominator, based on the conditions listed below under 'Encounter > MU' section.
