  1. Note. The EPRP mnemonic is an identifier in the database for a given measure calculated in a given way. OQP may, over time, change the criteria for a given measure. A measure attempting to capture a similar outcome but with a different calculation method would be assigned a different mnemonic number (for example, dmg28 in the above table, currently described as BP greater than or equal to 160/100, was listed as BP greater than 160/100 in earlier years and would have received a different mnemonic identifier). For purposes of this study, only measures with identical mnemonic during all quarters of the calculation period were used.+.
