Objective: Provide clinical summaries for patients for each office visit.
Measure: Clinical summaries provided to patients or patient-authorized representatives within 1 business day for more than 50 percent of office visits.
Exclusion: Any EP who has no office visits during the EHR reporting period.
This objective and measure aligns with Core Measure 13 in Stage 1 Meaningful Use. Although the threshold of 50 percent remains unchanged, the timeframe for providing the clinical summaries has been reduced from three business days to one.
