The Future of HEDIS - Episode 2

The Future of HEDIS: Episode 2

Answering Common Questions: September 27, 2019

The future of HEDIS focuses on 5 core ideas:

  • Allowable Adjustments: New flexibility lets users modify measures without changing their clinical intent.
  • Licensing and Certification: Updated requirements ensure accuracy of measure results.
  • Digital Measures: HEDIS specifications that download directly into users’ data systems bring new ease.
  • Electronic Clinical Data Systems (ECDS): This new reporting method helps clinical data create insight for managing the health of individuals and groups.
  • Schedule Change: A new schedule gives users more time by giving them complete measure specs sooner—11 months earlier than the current timeline.
