["Assessment, Performed": "Ambulatory Status"]

eCQM Data Element

Performance/Reporting Period
2020
Value Set Description from VSAC
Clinical Focus: This value set contains concepts that represent assessment of gait or balance to identify risk factors for falls.
Data Element Scope: This value set may use the Quality Data Model (QDM) datatype related to Assessment, Performed.
Inclusion Criteria: Includes only relevant concepts associated with all gait and balance assessment tools such as the Morse Fall Scale and the Parkinson's Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale. This is an extensional value set of LOINC codes.
Exclusion Criteria: No exclusions.

Constrained to codes in the Assessment, Performed: Ambulatory Status value set (2.16.840.1.113883.3.464.1003.118.11.1219)

QDM Datatype and Definition (QDM Version 5.4)

"Assessment, Performed"

Data elements that meet criteria using this datatype should document completion of the assessment indicated by the QDM category and its corresponding value set.

A QDM Known Issue has been identified related to this datatype. To see this QDM known Issue, please click here.

Timing: The time the assessment is completed; Author dateTime.

QDM Attributes

authorDateTime

The time the data element was entered into the clinical software. Note, some datatypes include both Relevant Time and Author dateTime attributes. The purpose is to accommodate Author dateTime if the actual start and stop times are not available when evaluating for feasibility, and also to allow specification of a time for Negation Rationale.

result

The final consequences or data collected from the datatype. Results can be used in four ways, to express: (1) That a result is present in the electronic record but any entry is acceptable. (2) A numerical result is reported directly as a value. Values may be integers or decimal numbers without units, or as a quantity with a value and units. Examples: 100 mg/dL for a lab test, 140 mmHg for blood pressure, as a percentage (actually a quantity with % as units), as a ratio (e.g., 1:4, 1:80). (3) A result that matches one of a specific set of coded concepts in a value set or a code that matches a direct reference code. (4) A result as a dateTime (Assessment, Performed and components). Note: Measures use Clinical Quality Language (CQL) logic to express the mathematical operators to constrain desired results to those above or below a certain threshold.
