In HDC Discover, a comprehensive approach is taken to provide insights into various measures through the QI Panel. For those seeking detailed information about specific measures, accessing the Single Measure View Page is key. This page offers a consolidated perspective on both the data and the associated measure metadata.

Information on the Single Measure View Page is conveniently organized into different tabs:

  1. Measure Description: This tab gives all the information about the measure, explaining how results/data are calculated along with associated parameters.
  2. Concepts and Logic: Under this tab, all relevant code systems linked to the measure are shown for easy reference.

Let’s delve into an example scenario to illustrate how to navigate through the system effectively:

Imagine you’re interested in understanding Heart Failure patients prescribed a Mineralocorticoid Receptor Antagonist (MRA) and the corresponding codes utilized for this medication.

  • Begin by logging into the system and accessing the QI Panel.
  • Navigate to the Disease Management domain located at the top of the QI Panel.

  • Under this domain, locate the Heart Failure sub-domain and locate the measure ‘Heart Failure patients prescribed an MRA in the past year.’

  • Click on the measure name  to access detailed information on the Single Measure View Page.
  • Within this page, navigate to the bottom and select the tab labeled Concepts and Logics.

Here, you’ll find an overview of the code systems employed for this specific measure.

It’s important to note that, currently, uncoded or compounded prescriptions are not captured within the system.

By following these steps and utilizing the provided information, users can gain valuable insights into specific measures and the associated code systems employed within HDC Discover.
