Percentage of patients 15-65 years of age who have been tested for HIV within that age range
Patients 15 to 65 years of age who had an outpatient visit during the measurement period
Patients diagnosed with HIV prior to the start of the measurement period
Patients with documentation of an HIV test between age 15-65 before the end of the measurement period
Higher score indicates better quality
This measure evaluates the proportion of patients with an HIV test between their 15th and 66th birthdays. In order to satisfy the measure, the reporting provider must have documentation of the administration of the laboratory test present in the patient's medical record. On occasion, providers will view HIV screening results that were performed elsewhere and therefore the results are not present in the EHR in structured format. To allow such tests to be applied to this measure, they should be entered into the EHR as a laboratory test in a manner consistent with the EHR in use. If the specific Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) Laboratory Test LOINC code of the test is not known, the entry should use the more generic code LOINC panel code [75622-1] which is present in the HIV test value set titled, "HIV Test Documentation Reviewed."
