CDS rules trigger CDS interventions that provide evidence-based clinical guidance when a user is making a clinical decision. Providers must satisfy both measures to satisfy this objective.
Measure 1: Implement five clinical decision support interventions related to four or more CQMs or high-priority health conditions at a relevant point of patient care for the entire reporting period.
Measure 2: Enable and implement drug-drug and drug-allergy interaction checks for the entire EHR reporting period.
Exclusion Available? Yes. If a provider writes less than 100 medication orders during the reporting period, an exclusion is available for measure 2 (drug interaction checks).
Note: EHR providers in New York do not qualify for this exclusion because the state requires e-prescribing. Use eRx comprehensive so that drug interaction checks and formulary checks are enabled.
