  1. a Based on billing remittances, electronic medical records, or manual tally of patients who were under the care of at least one of the participating health care providers during the implementation period (inpatient sites only). For outpatient sites, indicates the total number of encounters (except for one family practice, which only provided the total number of unique patient encounters)
  2. b Self-reported by participating health care providers
  3. c Using number of patients screened as the denominator for calculating proportions
  4. d Using number of patients who screened positive as the denominator for calculating proportions
  5. e Number of admissions during the implementation period where the patient was under the care of at least one participating health care provider
