HEDIS (Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set) is a set of standardized performance measures used by healthcare organizations to assess and compare the quality of care they provide.
Developed by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), HEDIS measures are designed to evaluate various aspects of healthcare delivery, including access to care, patient outcomes, and the use of preventive services. HEDIS measures are used by health plans, providers, and purchasers to identify areas for improvement in care delivery, and to compare the performance of different healthcare organizations.
HEDIS measures are updated annually, and currently include over 80 different performance measures across several areas of care, including preventive care, chronic disease management, and behavioral health.
The use of HEDIS measures has become widespread in the healthcare industry, as they provide a common language for comparing and evaluating the quality of care, and help healthcare organizations to identify areas for improvement in their care delivery models.
Overall, HEDIS is a valuable tool for healthcare organizations, as it helps to promote transparency, accountability, and improvement in the quality of care provided.
With Vim’s Quality gaps solution, quality measures like HEDIS are integrated into a clinician’s existing EHR workflows resulting in the ability to deliver high-value care and address more gaps with fewer clicks and pre-visit prep time.
