The Migraine Disability Assessment (MIDAS) tool can help you assess quality of life for patients with migraine or other primary headache disorders
A clinical decision support (CDS) notification will display during the patient visit if your patient’s medical history matches potential clinical markers of migraine or other primary headache disorders.
The notification is based on guidelines from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services outlined in Measure #435 of the Physician Quality Reporting System.
Headache Quality of Life (QOL): Patient has clinical markers associated with primary headache disorder or migraine and should be assessed at least twice a year. Perform the MIDAS (Migraine Disability Assessment) in Screening/Interventions/Assessments.
