Use of High-Risk Medications in Older Adults

Measure Information 2023 Performance Period
CMS Measure ID CMS156v11
NQF Number Not Applicable
Measure Description

Percentage of patients 65 years of age and older who were ordered at least two high-risk medications from the same drug class. Three rates are reported.

1. Percentage of patients 65 years of age and older who were ordered at least two high-risk medications from the same drug class.

2. Percentage of patients 65 years of age and older who were ordered at least two high-risk medications from the same drug class, except for appropriate diagnoses.

3. Total rate (the sum of the two numerators divided by the denominator, deduplicating for patients in both numerators).

Initial Population

Patients 65 years and older at the end of the measurement period who had a visit during the measurement period

Denominator Statement

Denominator Exclusions

Exclude patients who are in hospice care for any part of the measurement period.

Exclude patients receiving palliative care for any part of the measurement period.

Numerator Statement

Rate 1: Patients with at least two orders of high-risk medications from the same drug class on different days.

a. At least two orders of high-risk medications from the same drug class.

b. At least two orders of high-risk medications from the same drug class with summed days supply greater than 90 days.

c. At least two orders of high-risk medications from the same drug class each exceeding average daily dose criteria.

Rate 2: Patients with at least two orders of high-risk medications from the same drug class (i.e., antipsychotics and benzodiazepines) on different days.

Total rate (the sum of the two previous numerators, deduplicated).

Numerator Exclusions

Rate 2: For patients with two or more antipsychotic prescriptions ordered, exclude patients who have a diagnosis of schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, or bipolar disorder on or between January 1 of the year prior to the measurement period and the IPSD for antipsychotics.

For patients with two or more benzodiazepine prescriptions ordered, exclude patients who have a diagnosis of seizure disorders, rapid eye movement sleep behavior disorder, benzodiazepine withdrawal, ethanol withdrawal, or severe generalized anxiety disorder on or between January 1 of the year prior to the measurement period and the IPSD for benzodiazepines.

Guidance

The intent of the measure is to assess if the patient has been ordered at least two high-risk medication prescriptions from the same drug class 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 from the same drug class for them.

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.
