The Future of HEDIS - Episode 6

Telehealth and the Future of Quality: June 29, 2020

Discussion on telehealth’s rapid rise during COVID-19 and its implications for quality.

The Future of HEDIS Focuses on 6 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 traditional timeline.
  • Telehealth: The access to care that telehealth has brought Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic is vital to quality now and after the pandemic.
