    Posted by Kaitlyn Schnell

    As a provider, you play an important role in improving clinical performance through Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS). Whether it’s providing appropriate care within the designated time frames, documenting care in patients’ medical records, accurately coding claims, or supplying a timely response to medical records requests, promoting the well-being of health plan members is always at the top of your mind.

    And as the healthcare industry transitions towards value-based care, a good HEDIS score from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is vital to remaining competitive. Staying up to date on new and edited measures will help you stay compliant. We've created a HEDIS 2021 cheat sheet to help you do just that.
