A higher score indicates better quality
Initial encounter: The first encounter during the first 185 days of the measurement year.
Follow-up encounter: The last encounter that is at least 30 days but no more than 180 after the initial encounter.
A Functional Status Assessment (FSA) is based on administration of a validated instrument to eligible patients that asks patients to answer questions related to various domains including: pain, physical function, emotional well-being, health-related quality of life, symptom acuity.
The use of patient-reported outcomes data in eMeasures - such as this measure of functional status - demonstrates the need for the Quality Reporting Data Architecture (QRDA) to support a data attribute that indicates that the patient provided the information.
