Question about how handle episode-of-care measures and patient-based measures

We had some issues that were reported by our customers, these issues mentioned that some measures calculations results included some patients that had not an encounter for the provider that executed the calculation, these issues were reported for episode-of-care measures that according to CMS, these measures only must be included if the encounters is for the provider that executes the calculation. In contrast, the patient measures must include all the encounters regardless the providers.
