["Procedure, Performed": "PCI"]

Performance/Reporting Period
Value Set Description from VSAC
Clinical Focus: This value set contains concepts that represent procedures used to define percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI).
Data Element Scope: This value set may use the Quality Data Model (QDM) datatype related to Procedure, Performed. The intent of this data element is to identify patients who had percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) during an episode of acute myocardial infarction.
Inclusion Criteria: Includes only relevant concepts associated with identifying patients receiving percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI). This is a grouping of ICD-10-PCS and SNOMED CT codes.
Exclusion Criteria: No exclusions.

Constrained to codes in the Procedure, Performed: PCI value set (2.16.840.1.113762.1.4.1045.67)

QDM Datatype and Definition

"Procedure, Performed"

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


  • relevant dateTime references the time the procedure is performed when the procedure occurs at a single point in time.
  • relevantPeriod references a start and stop time for a procedure that occurs over a time interval. relevantPeriod addresses:
    • startTime - The time the procedure begins.
    • stopTime - The time the procedure ends.
  • author dateTime references the time the action was recorded.
  • Refer to the eCQM expression to determine allowable timings to meet measure criterion.


  • Timing refers to a single instance of a procedure. If a measure seeks to evaluate multiple procedures over a period of time, the measure developer should use CQL logic to represent the query request.
  • The incision dateTime is a single point in time available from the Operating Room and/or Anesthesia Record.
  • negation rationale indicates a one-time documentation of a reason an activity is not performed. Negation of QDM datatype-related actions for a reason always use the author dateTime attribute to reference timing and must not use relevantPeriod.
  • See section 6.4 for guidance about differentiating between successful and unsuccessful procedures.
