Quality Measure Toolkit
What is HEDIS®?
HEDIS stands for Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set. It’s a set of standard performance measures that gives information about the quality of a health plan. Patients and providers can find out about the quality of care, access, cost, and other measures to compare managed care plans. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) collects HEDIS data for Medicare plans.
How is HEDIS data collected?
Depending on the measure, data may be collected through:
- Administrative/claims data
- Supplemental files sent in by the provider during the year
- Medical record reviews
- Measure specifications outline measure description, exclusions and how the data may be collected.
