Accelerating Quality Scores with Daily / Near-real time HEDIS Measure Processing

  • January 16, 2018
  • 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM ET
  • Online

Health plans today need to enhance care quality and ensure compliance to regulatory needs such as NCQA HEDIS.  This means that they need to aggregate claims data, clinical data and supplemental data and calculate quality and performance metrics. This puts significant pressure on existing data aggregation and analytics processes, making it difficult for health plans to execute daily HEDIS compliance runs and get faster access to the latest information.

This webinar will provide an overview of how Health Plans can accelerate HEDIS computations, improve quality scores, enhance provider engagement and close gaps-in-care.

By participating in this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • Challenges faced by health plans moving from monthly/quarterly HEDIS processing to near-real time processing
  • Building a high-performance solution architecture for faster HEDIS processing
  • Leveraging HEDIS processing output for faster provider engagement and better compliance scores
