General Notes

The most accurate method to submit data for clinical quality gap closure is through correct coding. Supplemental data submission can be used for gap closure when information is not received through coding. All supplemental data must be signed and dated by a treating physician, nurse practitioner or physician assistant. All dates must include month, day and year.

Patient name and birthdate needs to be on all supplemental documentation. If birthdate is not officially on a report, it needs to be either written on the document and signed by the physician, or a demographic cover sheet should be included as an additional page with the submission.
