Record all of the following demographics:
- Preferred language
- Date of Birth
For all unique patients, you must record a subset of demographics using drchrono.
More than 50 percent of all unique patients seen by the EP have demographics recorded as structured data.
DENOMINATOR: Number of unique patients seen by the EP during the EHR reporting period.
NUMERATOR: Number of patients in the denominator who have all the elements of demographics (or a specific exclusion if the patient declined to provide one or more elements or if recording an element is contrary to state law) recorded as structured data.
The resulting percentage (Numerator ÷ Denominator) must be more than 50 percent in order for an EP to meet this measure.
There are no exclusions.

Tip: If you use OnPatient or the Check-in app, you can have patients fill this information out themselves before they are even in the exam room!
