Generating Encounter Codes

If you do not set a default encounter code, your Clinical Quality Measures (CQM) encounters will be zero. To automatically generate encounters based on completed procedures, use the Insert Encs tool.

Note: We recommend setting a default encounter code before you start a reporting period so CQM encounters are created every time you complete a procedure. See Default Encounter Code.

  1. In the Main Menu, click Setup, Chart, EHR, then click Settings in the upper left corner.
  2. Click Insert Encs.
  3. Enter a start and end date for the date range.
  4. Click Run.

    You will see a note of the number of encounters inserted and your CQM denominators will be changed.
