The Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) is a tool used by more than 90% of America's health plans to measure performance on important dimensions of care and service. The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) collects HEDIS survey results directly from health plans and Preferred Provider Organizations (PPOs) through the Healthcare Organization Questionnaire (HOQ), and collects HEDIS non-survey data through the Interactive Data Submission System (IDSS).
HEDIS consists of 81 measures across 5 domains of care. Because so many plans collect HEDIS data, and because the measures are so specifically defined, HEDIS makes it possible to compare the performance of health plans on an "apples-to-apples" basis.
HealthEC provides a robust solution with the following features to help navigate the common-place hurdles and challenges of HEDIS reporting:
