The visit must be performed by a PCP or OB/GYN.

Because BMI norms for youth vary with age and sex, this measure evaluates whether BMI percentile, rather than an absolute BMI value, is assessed.

This eCQM is a patient-based measure.

This version of the eCQM uses QDM version 5.5. Please refer to the eCQI resource center (https://ecqi.healthit.gov/qdm) for more information on the QDM.
