Description
The population criteria and definitions for denominator, numerator, and measurepopulation are confusing in that they are named for the overall aspect, but really are characterizing only the "inclusion" criteria for the overall numerator, denominator, or measurepopulation.
Add the following codes to the MeasurePopulation code system and value set:
numeratorinclusionNumerator InclusionNumerator inclusion criteria define patients or events to be included in the numerator. Numerator inclusions are used in proportion and ratio measures to define the criteria for inclusion in the numerator.
denominatorinclusionDenominator InclusionDenominator inclusion criteria define patients or events to be included in the denominator. Denominator inclusions are used in proportion and ratio measures to define the criteria for inclusion in the denominator.
measurepopulationinclusionMeasure Population InclusionMeasure population inclusion criteria define patients or events for which the individual observation for the measure should be taken. Measure population inclusion criteria are used for continuous variable measures rather than numerator and denominator criteria.
