  • *ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:

    • The patient must be at least 2 years old and younger than 18 prior to the start of the measurement period.

    • The Strep A test result LOINC code must be linked to a result code in the conditions table.  The result code can be user-created procedure code or be a result code sent to you by an electronic lab interface.  

    Example of linking the Group A Streptococcus Test Code (LOINC)
  • Edit > System Tables > Conditions > Procedures
  • Strep A LOINC

    • The codes used to indicate the Strep A order and the Strep A result should remain separate for tracking and reporting purposes.    There should be two codes:  the result will be marked as a result with the LOINC code and the order will be marked as a Lab procedure and set to track.  

    Example of a Group A Streptococcus Test Order and Result setup
  • Example of a Strep A result setup
  • Strep A LOINC

  • Example of Strep A order setup
  • Strep A order

    • The Group A Streptococcus Test result must occur within 3 days prior, during, or within 3 days after the first encounter during the measurement period where the diagnosis of Pharyngitis or Acute Tonsillitis occurred. 

    • The only data used to determine the denominator is data from the ChartMaker Clinical Module. If a patient encounter was not entered into the ChartMaker Clinical Module, that encounter is not included in the denominator for the statistical calculations on the Meaningful Use Dashboard. Please add these additional patients to the denominator and recalculate the percentage for Attestation purposes
