CMS Technical Specification

TennCare Notes

The attestation portal will require the EP to enter the numerator and denominator of the measure as defined in the technical specification.

Please note this measure requires more than 50% of transitions of care include medication reconciliation. The numerators and denominators are calculated to the hundredths place in the attestation portal, so while a proportion of 50.01% will be evaluated as a successful attestation, 50.00% will not.
