The Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS)
What is HEDIS?
The Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS), is a popular tool maintained and administered by NCQA to objectively measure health plan performance on important dimensions of care and services. It is one of health care’s most widely used tools, with more than 190 million people enrolled in plans that report HEDIS results.
HEDIS measures performance in health care where improvements can make a meaningful difference in people’s lives. Health plans look to HEDIS data to make informed decisions regarding improvements surrounding their quality of care.
HEDIS is one component of NCQA’s accreditation process. The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is an independent organization that works to improve health care quality through the administration of evidence-based standards, measures, programs, and accreditation.
HEDIS was designed to allow consumers to compare health plan performance to other plans and to national or regional benchmarks. Although not originally intended for trending, HEDIS results are increasingly used to track year-to-year performance.
What you can expect
The 90 HEDIS measures are divided into six “domains of care”:
• Effectiveness of Care
• Access/Availability of Care
• Experience of Care
• Utilization and Relative Resource Use
• Health Plan Descriptive Information
• Measures Collected Using Electronic Clinical Data Systems
These measures help identify the opportunities for improvement, oversee the success of the quality improvement and provide a set of regulation standards.
