To search the measure inventory, enter one or more terms in the search box and hit enter or click the search button. CMIT searches all fields in the inventory and is not case-sensitive. If you search for multiple terms, CMIT will return all measures containing at least one of the terms. You can prefix each of the terms with a "+" or "-" to indicate that the term must appear or must not appear respectively. Additionally, you can search for a phrase by enclosing a series of terms in double quotes. The table on the right provides several examples of searches.
When returning search results, CMIT assigns a relevance value to each measure. This relevance value increases with:
The number of search terms appearing in the measure
The number of times each search term appears in the measure
The appearance of each search term in an important column (e.g., in the measure's Title)
Returns all measures which contains either aspirin or cardiac. CMIT will rank measures which contain both terms higher than those which only contain one or the other.
+aspirin cardiac hospital
Returns all measures which contain aspirin and either cardiac or hospital. CMIT will rank measures which contain more of the terms higher.
Returns all measures which contain both aspirin and cardiac.
