Documenting EHR Reminders Sent to Patients
In EHR Modified Stage 2, there is no reporting requirement for reminders.
Reminders are notices sent to patients to remind them of preventive or follow-up care. Reminders are counted in the numerator for the EHR Reminders measure in two ways:
To determine which patients meet the stage 1 criteria for a reminder, generate a Patient List based on Birthdate. See Generating an EHR Patient List. To also determine which patients meet criteria and had a completed procedure within a date range, use query #868 in Query Examples, specifying a birthdate, provider, and date range.
The Reminders grid lists any reminders that have been triggered for the patient, based on Reminder Rules. Reminder rules are optional and set patient criteria for a reminder (e.g. age, conditions). See EHR Reminder Rules. In the example above, the patient meets the criteria for being 5 years of age or younger.
