Menu 7: Transition of Care Summary

Objective

The EP who transitions their patient to another setting of care or provider of care or refers their patient to another provider of care should provide summary care record for each transition of care or referral.

Measure

The EP who transitions or refers their patient to another setting of care or provider of care provides a summary of care record for more than 50 percent of transitions of care and referrals.

DENOMINATOR: Number of transitions of care and referrals during the EHR reporting period for which the EP was the transferring or referring provider.

 NUMERATOR: Number of transitions of care and referrals in the denominator where a summary of care record was provided.

The resulting percentage (Numerator ÷ Denominator) must be more than 50 precent in order for an EP to meet this measure.  

Exclusion

An EP who neither transfers a patient to another setting nor refers a patient to another provider during the EHR reporting period.
