    • Outcome discrepancy for Stroke-2 eCQM

    Description

      For hospital inpatient quality eCQM program for CY2021 reporting period , I have 3 cases where the Stroke-2 outcome within the CMS HQR portal  is different than expected.  In all 3 cases, the CMS HQR outcome is showing as meeting denominator only, and not meeting the numerator.  However, within our EHR and within our internal QRDA files I am showing an antithrombotic medication at discharge for the patients, and there is an RX Norm code attached which is on the CMS value set.  When I look at the QRDA file, I can see the antithrombotic medication listed along with the Rx norm code, and the date and time is the same as the discharge date and time,  so I  can not tell why these cases would not meet the numerator.

      These examples are as follows:
