Acceptable Blood Pressure Readings

Do not submit BP readings: 
1.) Taken during an acute inpatient stay or an ED visit; 
2.) Taken during an outpatient visit which was for the sole purpose of having a diagnostic test or surgical procedure performed (e.g., sigmoidoscopy, removal of a mole); 
3.) Obtained the same day as a major diagnostic or surgical procedure (e.g., EKG/ECG, stress test, administration of IV contrast for a radiology procedure, endoscopy); 
4.) Reported or taken by the patient. 

A test result from a provider outside of the reporting medical group is allowed if the result is documented in the reporting medical group's patient record and is the most recent test result during the measurement period.
