Guidance

Codes to identify sexually active women include codes for: pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections, contraceptives or contraceptive devices, and infertility treatments.

The denominator exclusion does not apply to patients who qualify for the initial population (IP) based on services other than the pregnancy test alone. These other services include services for sexually transmitted infections, contraceptives or contraceptive devices and infertility treatments. For example, a patient who has both a pregnancy test and a chlamydia diagnosis, either of which would qualify them for the IP, would not be eligible for this denominator exclusion.

Patient self-report for procedures as well as diagnostic studies should be recorded in 'Procedure, Performed' template or 'Diagnostic Study, Performed' template in QRDA-1. Patient self-report is not allowed for laboratory tests.

This eCQM is a patient-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.
