The numeratorinfo-icon is the upper portion of a fraction used to calculate a rate, proportioninfo-icon, or ratioinfo-icon. Also called the measure focus, it is the target process, condition, event, or outcome. Numerator criteria are the processes or outcomes expected for each patient, procedure, or other unit of measurement defined in the denominatorinfo-icon. A numerator statement describes the clinical action that satisfies the conditions of the performance measure.
