***As of 2017, this Quality Measure has been retired by CMS. It is no longer able to be reported for Meaningful Use nor MIPS Quality measures. MacPractice maintains this documentation only for reference.***

 

Overview
Percentage of patients aged 20 through 79 years who had a fasting LDL-C test performed and whose risk-stratified fasting LDL-C is at or below the recommended LDL-C goal.

High Risk
All patients aged 20 through 79 years who had a fasting LDL-C or a calculated LDL-C test performed during the measurement period and have CHD or CHD Risk Equivalent OR 10 year Framingham risk > 20%

  • Denominator 1:

    • They need one of the following, entered in as a Laboratory Order with a Received Date within the filtered date range-
      • LDL Code Laboratory Test performed during the filtered date range, indicated with the listed LNC codes in the report footer
