Question: Follow-up to UserQuestionId03Vte101043

This is follow up to a prior question: "";.

Thank you for the feedback, this is helpful. Would you please clarify, is a timeframe or date for the follow-up monitoring required in the information about plans to monitor post discharge to answer "yes"? Or, is a less specific plan of, "Follow up with physician post discharge for warfarin monitoring" acceptable?

Answer:

Specific notation on name, number and date for follow up is not longer required. This change was made in response to an identified problem for many facilities discharging into the prison systems, and behavior health. The goal in maintaining the VTE measure is also to prepare for conversion to all electronic capture, as well as consistent alignment with CMS measure collection.
