Guidance

The intent of the measure is to assess if the patient has been prescribed at least two of the same high-risk medications on different days.

The intent of the measure is to assess if the reporting provider ordered the high-risk medication(s). If the patient had a high-risk medication previously prescribed by another provider, they would not be counted towards the numerator unless the reporting provider also ordered a high-risk medication for them.

This eCQM is a patient-based measure.

Calculate average daily dose for each prescription event. To calculate average daily dose, multiply the quantity of pills prescribed by the dose of each pill and divide by the days supply. For example, a prescription for the 30-days supply of digoxin containing 15 pills, 0.25 mg each pill, has an average daily dose of 0.125 mg. To calculate average daily dose for elixirs and concentrates, multiply the volume prescribed by daily dose and divide by the days supply. Do not round when calculating average daily dose.
