The timeframe for the visit during the Encounter, Performed: Encounter-Influenza or Procedure, Performed: Peritoneal Dialysis or Procedure, Performed: Hemodialysis in the Population Criteria-Denominator, refers to the influenza season defined by the measure: October through March (October 1 for the year prior to the start of the reporting period through March 31 during the reporting period). The Encounter-Influenza Grouping OID detailed in the data criteria section below is comprised of several individual OIDs of different encounter types. The individual OIDs are included in the value set and should be reviewed to determine that an applicable visit occurred during the timeframe for Encounter, Performed: Encounter-Influenza as specified in the denominator.
To enable reporting of this measure at the close of the reporting period, this measure will only assess the influenza season that ends in March of the reporting period. The subsequent influenza season (ending March of the following year) will be measured and reported in the following year.
