ADHD: claims-based measure
- Electronic prescribing data—Is the patient on a stimulant?
- Were there two visits in the past 12 months with ADHD diagnosis included on billing?
- Was there a claim filed by a mental health specialist?
Currently we are measuring this using a combination of claims and electronic prescribing data. For every child prescribed a stimulant, we look in the claims database to see, Were there two visits in the past 12 months with ADHD diagnosis included on billing? Or, Was there a claim filed by a mental health specialist?
