It’s HEDIS® time again! Health plans should have data collection and audit activities in full swing for Healthcare Effectiveness Data Information Set (HEDIS®) 2018. High-performing plans will have started the hybrid chart collection and medical record review.
January 31 is the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) deadline for the HEDIS® 2018 Roadmap. This document is used by HEDIS® auditors as the backbone for evaluating a plan’s systems and processes to ensure the plan’s HEDIS® results comply with NCQA standards for reporting.
February 16 is the due date for submitting the Healthcare Organization Questionnaire (HOQ) to NCQA. Populating the HOQ can be confusing for some plans, but it is important to get it right to prevent surprises when it is time to upload final data submissions in June.
HEDIS® results are a significant portion of CMS Star Ratings and NCQA accreditation scores, so it is critical for plans to understand all the moving parts and multiple deadlines of the HEDIS® process. Gorman Health Group has the expertise to help your plan implement a robust strategy and targeted actions for delivering measurable HEDIS® improvements.
