Using Period-Based Versions of Measurements and Incentives Summary Guidelines

  • When you reference the non-leaf value of a measurement, you are asking for the sum of leaf values that span the referenced higher-level period.
  • For all non-self-referencing measurements and incentives, the reference includes the current period if the offset is not used.
  • Self-referencing measurements and incentives can never include the current period.
  • If the secondary measurement or incentive calculates data that crosses leaf-period boundaries, 99% of the time you should use the leaf-period version.
  • For references to measurements for use in a rate table, attainment period is an additional criterion.
  • Use a synthetic value whenever possible instead of a sum to date function.
