*1 Adapted from…”measures are those with changes from existing specifications such as expanded age ranges (e.g., 18 and older instead of 65 and older) or alternate data sources from the NQF-endorsed measure. Measures with an age stratification (e.g., 18 and older instead of all ages) are not considered adaptations from the NQF endorsed measures.

*2 Hybrid measures use claims and medical record data.
