Weight Assessment and Counseling for Nutrition and Physical Activity for Children/Adolescents (WCC): Evidence of BMI Percentile Documentation

HEDIS® Measurement Description: The percentage of members 3–17 years of age who had an outpatient visit with a PCP or OB/GYN and who had evidence of the following during the measurement year.

  • BMI percentile documentation*.

*           Because BMI norms for youth vary with age and gender, this measure evaluates whether BMI percentile is assessed rather than an absolute BMI value.

Hybrid Methodology: Organizations look for numerator compliance in both administrative and medical record data. The denominator consists of a systematic sample of members drawn from the measure’s eligible population. Organizations review administrative data to determine if members in the systematic sample received the service, and review medical record data for members who do not meet the numerator criteria through administrative data. The reported rate is based on members in the sample who received the service required for the numerator.

Measure Identifier: HEDIS_WCC.01.H
