Combined Core and Menu Measures

Combined Core and Menu Measures (zip file) Updated September 9th, 2014

Exclusions for Menu Objectives

Beginning in 2014, EPs, eligible hospitals, and CAHs will no longer be permitted to count an exclusion
toward the minimum of 5 menu objectives on which they must report if there are other menu objectives
which they can select. In other words, a provider cannot select a menu objective and claim an exclusion
for it if there are other menu objectives they can meet.

EPs, eligible hospitals, and CAHs will not be penalized for selecting a menu objective and claiming the
exclusion if they would also qualify for the exclusions for all the remaining menu objectives. For
example, EPs who must select to test the capability to submit data to either an immunization registry or
a syndromic surveillance database as one of their menu objectives can select the menu objective for
submitting data to an immunization registry and claim the exclusion if they would also be able to claim
the exclusion for submitting data to a syndromic surveillance database. They would not be penalized for
claiming this exclusion. Source
