CAREWare Reports Now Available
We are pleased to announce the release of in+care Campaign performance measures for upload into the CAREWare Performance Measure Module. In the attached zip folder you will find:
- An XML file for the in+care Campaign Gap, Patients Newly Enrolled in Medical Care, and Viral Load Suppression measures
- Instructions for uploading these measure files into the CAREWare Performance Measure Module
- Description of the fields used in CAREWare to construct the in+care Campaign performance measures
These files are also posted on the in+care Campaign website under the "Resources" section. Look for the folder called "CAREWare Users."
In order to program the last in+care Campaign Medical Visit Frequency measure in CAREWare, a new calculated field needs to be built in CAREWare. Upon programming and testing its functionality, the Medical Visit Frequency measure will be added in CAREWare. We hope to announce its availability by mid to late December 2011when this final Campaign measure is released.
We would like to thank those grantees who tested these measures in CAREWare and provided valuable feedback. As you use these measures in CAREWare, please let us know if you find any errors.
eCW, Lab Tracker, EPIC and ARIES Users
eCW and Lab Tracker report structures are almost finalized. Stay tuned for an update on these systems in the coming days.
We are still looking for EPIC and ARIES database champions. If you feel like you or someone you know could serve as a database champion for one of these systems, please email us at: incare@NationalQualityCenter.org.

For Measure 3, the numerator and denominator both refer to the pool of new patients who were enrolled in care at your site in the first four months of the measurement period who did not become inactive, move away, die or become incarcerated for more than 90 days in the measurement year.
