1 Use of High Risk Medications in the Elderly (DAE) Contents OVERVIEW... 1 TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS... 3 APPENDIX OVERVIEW Measure Description The percentage of patients 65 years of age and older who received at least one high-risk medication. The percentage of patients 65 years of age and older who received at least two different high-risk medications. Deviations from HEDIS Specifications The denominator from the third-party specifications includes beneficiaries who have continuous medical and pharmacy benefit enrollment for the measurement year with no more than one gap in enrollment of up to 45 days during the measurement year. The patient must be enrolled as of December 31 of the measurement year. The common enrollment specifications (and exclusion of 2010 part year beneficiaries) mean that all beneficiaries in the denominator will have enrollment for all of Also, the allowed gap of 45 days for HEDIS specs is different from the one-month gap allowed in our specs. The third-party specifications do not specify the setting for the NDC codes, but there are no NDC codes on claims other than Part D so we will only be searching in Part D claims. Assumptions/Notes The eligible population for this measure is based on discharges, not patients. This differs from how the eligible population is defined for other performance measures. It is possible for the denominator to contain multiple discharge records for the same individual. Data Sources Denominator inclusion data: 2010 Part A file 2010 Part B file 2010 Part D file Denominator exclusion data: None Numerator inclusion data: 2010 Part D file 1

2 Denominator Beneficiaries are included in the denominator if the following criteria are met: 65 years and older as of December 31 of the measurement year Continuous medical and pharmacy benefit enrollment for the measurement year with no more than one gap in enrollment of up to 45 days during the measurement year Enrolled as of December 31 of the measurement Denominator Exclusions Numerator None Beneficiaries are included if the beneficiary meets the following criteria: Numerator 1: At least one prescription dispensed for any high-risk medication during the measurement year. Numerator 2: At least two prescriptions dispensed for different high-risk medications during the measurement year. Rate Calculations For both rates, a lower rate represents better performance. 2

3 TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS Denominator The eligible population of beneficiaries who were a) 65 years and older as of December 31 of the measurement year and b) have continuous medical and pharmacy benefit enrollment for the measurement year with no more than one gap in enrollment of up to 45 days during the measurement year. Note that the patient must be enrolled as of December 31 of the measurement year. A. For each beneficiary i attributed to provider k use the enrollment arrays created in the enrollment preprocessing program and create NCQA_HRME_DEN i = 1 if: <= Years between BENE_DOB and 12/31/2010 and The sum of the Part A, B, and D enrollment flags in each month of 2010 is less than 3 in no more than one month. The sum of the flags in December 2010 must be equal to 3. Denominator Exclusions None. Numerator Numerator 1 - At least one prescription dispensed for any high-risk medication (Table DAE-A) during the measurement year. Identify different drugs using the Drug ID field located in the NDC list on NCQA s Web site (www.ncqa.org). NCQA provided a comprehensive list of medications and NDC codes to on November 15, Please see the Excel file Table DAE-A - Use of High-Risk Medications in the Elderly (DAE).xls for the list of NDCs to use. A. For each beneficiary i, create NCQA_HRME1_NUM i variable B. Search the 2010 Part D File and flag beneficiaries for inclusion in the numerator. 1. NCQA_HRME1_NUM i = 1 if 2. At least one of the following occurred between 1/1/2010 and 12/31/2010 for beneficiary i in the 2010 Part D File where NCQA_HRME_DEN i = 1: NDC Description Variable Name Product service ID: short sas name = PRDSRVID, long sas name = PROD_SRVC_ID Values/Rule (Unless otherwise noted, only require one {n} to equal the value) High-Risk Medications See Appendix 1 Label DAE_IIB2_NDC_A_11 DAE_IIB2_NDC_B_11 DAE_IIB2_NDC_C_11 C. Else NCQA_HRME1_NUM i = 0 3

4 Numerator 2 - At least two prescriptions dispensed for different high-risk medications (Table DAE-A) during the measurement year. D. For each beneficiary i, create NCQA_HRME2_NUM i variable E. Search the 2010 Part D File and flag beneficiaries for inclusion in the numerator. 1. NCQA_HRME2_NUM i = 1 if 2. At least two of the following occurred between 1/1/2010 and 12/31/2010 for beneficiary i in the 2010 Part D File where NCQA_HRME_DEN i = 1: Description Variable Name Values/Rule (Unless otherwise noted, only require one {n} to equal the value) NDC Product service ID: short sas name = PRDSRVID, long sas name = PROD_SRVC_ID High-Risk Medications See Appendix 1 Else NCQA_HRME2_NUM i = 0 Provider Performance Measure A. For each provider k, create NCQA_HRME1_RATE k = ( NCQA_HRME1_NUM i / NCQA_HRME1_DEN i )*100 B. For each provider k, create NCQA_HRME2_RATE k = ( NCQA_HRME2_NUM i / NCQA_HRME2_DEN i )*100 4
