Practice Fusion developed the PHM program for BMI based on CMS quality measure 69v2: Preventive Care and Screening: Body Mass Index (BMI) Screening and Follow-up.

Adult BMI clinical decision support
This program provides you with alerts to assist in identifying individuals who are due for height/weight measurement to calculate BMI and/or who have a BMI that falls outside of the clinically appropriate range (per the BMI clinical quality measure) without a documented weight management plan. The notifications will be displayed in the new clinical encounter screen for eligible patients.
To resolve this alert, you’ll need to document a weight management plan.
Resolve the alert
If the patient’s BMI (automatically calculated from vitals) falls outside of the clinically appropriate range, a follow-up plan may be documented by clicking Conduct weight loss plan. This alert can also be resolved through the Screenings/intervention/assessments section.
Record additional plans
Record multiple follow-up plans by selecting the weight management screening, and adding additional plans in the details pane. The status of each plan will be automatically recorded in the chart note under the weight management screening.
Remove plans from the list by clicking the X next to plan name.
Population health management dashboards
The PHM dashboards allow you to track how many of your age-eligible patients have received certain evidence-based clinical care that may be appropriate for them. After you select the Population Health Management tile from the home screen or Population Health Management from Reports, you will be directed to your PHM dashboards. The BMI dashboard will show you the percentage of age appropriate patients with a current BMI measurement and for patients with BMI outside of the normal range, the percentage who have a documented follow-up plan.
To view BMI specific dashboards, select “View” to be taken to the detailed BMI dashboard.
The following definitions will help you understand the information displayed in the PHM dashboards:
