Core 6: Clinical Decision Support


Use clinical decision support to improve performance on high-priority health conditions.


Measure 1: Implement five CDS (clinical decision support) interventions related to four or more CQMs (clinical quality measures) at a relevant point in patient care for the entire EHR reporting period. If four CQMs related to an eligible professional's scope of practice or patient population are non-applicable, then the CDS interventions must be related to high-priority health conditions.

Measure 2: The eligible professional has enabled and implemented the functionality for drug-drug and drug-allergy interaction checks for the entire EHR reporting period. 

Please Note: drchrono automatically does this for you. You do not need to do anything separate to complete measure 2.

Attestation Requirements

  • YES/NO
  • Providers must attest YES to implementing five clinical decision support interventions and enabling and implementing functionality for a drug-drug and drug-allergy interaction to meet this measure.
