Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set
First released in 1993 by National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) is a tool used by more than 90 percent of America's health plans to measure performance on important dimensions of care and service. HEDIS is used by consultants, employers and consumers where it is audited and maintained in detail measurements by the NCQA to better facilitate the improvement in health care and services. Health plans also use HEDIS results to see where they need to focus their improvement efforts. In addition, customers are also able to use HEDIS to compare different health care plans to seek the best plan performance both regionally and locally.
HEDIS measures address a broad range of important health issues. Among them are the following:
Asthma Medication Use
Persistence of Beta-Blocker Treatment after a Heart Attack
Controlling High Blood Pressure
Comprehensive Diabetes Care
Breast Cancer Screening
Antidepressant Medication Management
Childhood and Adolescent Immunization Status
Advising Smokers to Quit
