The United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) Guide to Clinical Preventive Services, June 2012, recommends that clinicians screen all adult patients for obesity and offer intensive counseling and behavioral interventions to promote sustained weight loss for obese adults.

This measure assesses the percentage of patients aged 18 years through 85 years of age whose most recent BMI measurement is based on the following ranges:

  • Normal Parameters: 18-64 years BMI >=18.5 and <25, 65 years and older BMI >=23 and <30
  • Above Normal Parameters: 18-64 years BMI >=25, 65 years and older BMI >=30
  • Below Normal Parameters: 18-64 years BMI <18.5, 65 years and older BMI<23

  • Disclaimer: Measures reported by WCHQ healthcare organizations represent a specific aspect of care in relation to an evidence-based standard, but are not clinical guidelines and do not establish standards of care.
