1. Measure Details

The MIPS eligible clinician that transitions or refers their patient to another setting of care or health care clinician (1) uses CEHRT to create a summary of care record; and (2) electronically transmits such summary to a receiving health care clinician for at least one transition of care or referral.

2. Measure Parameters:

Numerator: The number of transitions of care and referrals in the denominator where a summary of care record was created using CEHRT and exchanged electronically.

Denominator: Number of transitions of care and referrals during the performance period for which the MIPS eligible clinician was the transferring or referring health care clinician.

How to meet in Elation: In the patient's visit note, indicate that the patient is undergoing a transition of care to an outside provider, then attach the visit note to a letter or referral to that provider.

3. Elation Workflows
Step 1: Mark "To Other Setting or Dr." at the bottom of the visit note (Denominator)
If you send a referral while the visit note is open, Elation will automatically check "To Other Setting or Dr." 

Step 2: Attach the visit note to a Letter or Referral (Numerator)
Send a Letter to Provider or Referral and attach your visit note that was marked with "To Other Setting or Dr."  

Add the recipient and their contact information in the "To" field.

If sending to a non-Elation provider, you must include either a fax, Email, DIRECT address. if the provider is already using Elation, the letter will be sent directly to their Elation account.

4. Additional Info/FAQs
This measure is both a base and performance measure, meaning points are available for compliance, and for the numerator/denominator score.
