12.15.2020 Follow-Up After Hospitalization for Mental Illness (FUH) What time frame should be used to identify acute and nonacute readmissions or direct transfers when identifying the event/diagnosis?

Use a 30-day period. Replace the reference to “7-day follow up period” with “30 days after discharge (the denominator event)” in both the “Acute readmission or direct transfer” and “Nonacute readmission or direct transfer” sections of the specification. This ensures that the same Eligible Population criteria are used for all organizations that report the FUH measure (regardless of product line).
