Documenting weight, nutrition, and activity counseling for children and adults
March 26, 2019

The Health Care Effectiveness and Data Information Set (HEDIS) measures the percentage of your patients who have had face-to-face outpatient visits with their physician during the measurement year. Here are the requirements for children, adolescents, and adults.

For this age group HEDIS requires
Children and adolescents, ages 3-17 that when counseling, you note in the patient’s medical record once during the measurement year:
  • their body mass index (BMI) percentile either on a graph or documented as a percentile.
  • that you have discussed or counseled for nutrition and physical activity. The entry must list the date and details of the counseling conversation.
Adults, ages 18-74
  • that you document once during the measurement year the patient’s height, weight and BMI.
  • BMI must be plotted on a graph or documented as a percentile for individuals ages 18-20.
