Core 6: Medication Allergy List

Objective
Maintain active medication allergy list

In English?
This one is also pretty straightforward.  For all unique patients you see during the reporting period, you must maintain a list of medications to which a patient has known allergies, or an indication that he/she has none.

Measure
More than 80% of all unique patients seen by the EP have at least one entry (or an indication that the patient has no known medication allergies) recorded as structured data

DENOMINATOR: Number of unique patients seen by the EP during the EHR reporting period.

NUMERATOR: Number of unique patients in the denominator who have at least one entry (or an indication that the patient has no known medication allergies) recorded as structured data in their medication allergy list.

The resulting percentage (Numerator ÷ Denominator) must be more than 80 percent in order for an EP to meet this measure.

Exclusion
There are no exclusions.
