Notes for Abstraction:

  • The firm group is based on the total number of clinical placements at the site for the past 12 month period. This number is the same number reported by the site in the certification application (e-app).
    EXAMPLE:
    • “Total number of Clinical Placements at this site: 1394”
      • The total is the sum of the number of allied health professionals, nursing professionals, and licensed independent practitioners (LIPs) placed from the site in the past 12 months
      • Firms certified under the Corporate Review Model select the size category corresponding to the total number of clinical placements for ALL sites listed in the e-app.
  • The Firm Group selected for performance measure data reporting will be the same for every month (i.e., 24 months) of the review cycle.
  • If the firm group changes during the review cycle and the number of clinical placements either increases or decreases, the firm/site may move up or down a size category at the time of application for the next review cycle.
  • The total number of clinical placements reported for the past 12 months is not the same as the denominator value (i.e., clinical placements) reported each month.
