PIPE Patient Attribution Methodology

Please see below for a description of patient attribution. There is also an attached document at the bottom of the article that has a flowchart of this attribution logic. 

  • It replaces any prior information (e.g., PCP/clinic).
  • If the Demographic file PCP/clinic is blank, then PIPE moves to the Encounter file for attribution Steps 2 and 3.
  • To answer St. Luke’s Q1, yes, as new PCP information is available on incremental submissions, this would be applied to historical calculations. Just something that they’ll need to keep in mind if they run custom historical measure periods.
