Routine Visits Test

The UTC is preparing for the Routine Visits test that will likely occur in the spring of 2020. The timing will be confirmed with the UTC Steering Committee. This test seeks to better define routine patient visits separately from non-routine visits. The test will also determine whether reported UDS clinical quality measure (CQM) performance is influenced by including non-routine visits in CQM data.


Routine Visits Test Process

  1. Define the routine and non-routine patients using electronic data available from Electronic Health Records (EHRs)
  2. Calculate and compare patient counts, visit counts, and CQM performance for routine, non-routine, and total patient cohorts
  3. Test the feasibility and burden of reporting volume and CQM performance by routine, non-routine, and total patient cohorts

The UTC is working with the Health FFRDC to finalize the testing process.

Please contact or the steering committee member from your region with any questions, or if you are interested in getting involved.
