Guidance

This eCQM is a patient-based measure.

HIV viral load data should be captured either as a numeric value or as a character/text value, depending on whether a given viral load result falls above or below the lab’s lower limit of detection. For viral loads at or above the lower limit of detection, the viral load should be captured as a numeric value (expressed as the number of copies/mL). For viral loads below the lower limit of detection, the viral load should be populated with a character/text value equivalent to "Below lower limit of detection." The EHR need not record this character value using this exact wording (for example, the character value could be recorded as "<20 copies/mL" or "not detected"), but values below the lower limit of detection should be documented to allow the submitter to accurately map them to a value of "Below lower limit of detection" for reporting purposes.

This version of the eCQM uses QDM version 5.6. Please refer to the QDM page for more information on the QDM.
