PIPE Blood Pressure File Guidance

Below is guidance for the Appointment Type field for blood pressure readings associated with a diagnostic test or surgical procedure. With this process, you would not need to apply codes 1=diagnostic test or 2=surgical procedure, and PIPE will be able to exclude those readings when calculating the diabetes and vascular measures. 
  1. Use logic to identify specific departments (e.g., surgical, testing), and leave the Appointment Type field blank.
  2. Use the NCQA outpatient code set (below) to identify qualifying readings, enter code 3=other.
