The Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) is a widely used performance improvement tool in healthcare. There are many healthcare plans, physicians, and other organizations that report HEDIS results. But understanding the HEDIS measures and knowing how to appropriately report the initiatives can be complicating. There are 90 HEDIS measures over 6 domains of care are reported. There are HEDIS technical specifications that include new and updated HEDIS measures with instructions on the appropriate data collection and guidelines that are used for calculations and samplings. The measures are constantly improving and looking at ways to update the ways of reporting. The changes with HEDIS will be useful in providing valid and reliable health care information in the evolving medical landscape. It also includes rules for allowable adjustments of HEDIS to accommodate the application of HEDIS measure to various levels of the healthcare system for quality improvement initiatives. The HEDIS measures were developed and are maintained by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
