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 fall risk assessment tools and screening assessments used to evaluate fall risk such as the Get Up and Go Test, Morse falls risk assessment, multidisciplinary team falls assessment, and history of falls. This is a grouping of LOINC and SNOMED CT codes.
Exclusion Criteria: Excludes codes that indicate falls for children or falls that take place in an inpatient setting.
Constrained to codes in the Assessment, Performed: Falls Screening value set
Data elements that meet criteria using this datatype should document completion of the assessment indicated by the QDM category and its corresponding value set.
- relevant dateTime references timing for an assessment that occurs at a single point in time.
- relevant Period references a start and stop time for an assessment that occurs over a time interval
- author dateTime references the time the action was recorded.
- Refer to the eCQM expression to determine allowable timings to meet measure criterion.
Note: 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.
