Core 12: Preventative Care

Objective

Use clinically relevant information to identify patients who should receive reminders for preventive/follow-up care and send these patients the reminders, per patient preference. 

Measure

More than 10% of all unique patients who have had 2 or more office visits with the eligible provider within the 24 months before the beginning of the EHR reporting period were sent a reminder, per patient preference when available. 

  • DENOMINATOR: Number of unique patients who have had two or more office visits with the eligible provider in the last 24 months prior to the beginning of the EHR reporting period. 
  • NUMERATOR: Number of patients in the denominator who were sent a reminder per patient preference when available during the EHR reporting period.
  • THRESHOLD: The resulting percentage must be more than 10% in order for an eligible provider to meet this measure. 

Exclusions

Any eligible provider who did not have any office visits in the 24 months before the EHR reporting period.
