128. Preventive Care and Screening: Body Mass Index (BMI) Screening and Follow-Up Plan

This measure is available to ExamWRITER users only. You will not be able to complete this measure in Eyefinity EHR.

Percentage of patients aged 18 years and older with a BMI documented during the current encounter or during the previous six months and with a BMI outside of normal parameters, a follow-up plan is documented during the encounter or during the previous six months of the current encounter

Normal BMI parameters are between 18.5 and 24.9 kg/m2.

There is no diagnosis associated with this measure. This measure is to be reported a minimum of once per performance period for patients seen during the performance period. This measure may be reported by eligible clinicians who perform the quality actions described in the measure based on the services provided at the time of the qualifying visit and the measure-specific denominator coding. The BMI may be documented in the medical record of the provider or in outside medical records obtained by the provider. If the most recently documented BMI is outside of normal parameters, then a follow-up plan must be documented during the encounter or during the previous six months of the current encounter. The documented follow-up plan must be based on the most recent document BMI outside of normal parameters. If more than one BMI is reported during the measure period, the most recent BMI will be used to determine if the performance has been met.
