Guidance

The "Non-elective Inpatient Encounter" value set intends to capture all non-scheduled hospitalizations. This value set is a subset of the "Inpatient Encounter" value set, excluding concepts that specifically refer to elective hospital admissions. Non-elective Inpatient Encounters include emergency, urgent, and unplanned admissions.

NPO (Nothing by mouth) is not a valid reason for not administering antithrombotic therapy by end of hospital day 2 as another route of administration can be used (i.e. rectal or intravenous).

In the denominator exclusions, the intent is to only exclude patients with a total length of stay of

Enoxaparin 40mg once a day is not a therapeutic dose for antithrombotic therapy.

This eCQM is an episode-based measure.

This version of the eCQM uses QDM version 5.5. Please refer to the eCQI resource center for more information on the QDM.
