HEDIS—the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set—is a nationally recognized indication of quality in the healthcare industry. The National Committee for Quality Assurance developed and regularly modifies these measures to track quality, promote evidence-based practices, and help patients make informed decisions about health care services. BlueCross, like the vast majority of America’s healthcare plans, use HEDIS measures to stay abreast of how well our company and network providers are doing on a range of health care issues.
Several HEDIS indicators concern behavioral health. Learn about these measures and what you can do to ensure quality care for your patients.
