HEDIS Users Group

If you’re involved in the implementation of HEDIS, there is no better way to prepare than by joining NCQA’s HEDIS Users Group (HUG). The HUG offers you access to the most up-to-date information on HEDIS specifications so you can begin planning for the future. By joining with others who spend their time producing, reporting and interpreting HEDIS data, you will learn first-hand about the latest developments in performance measurement and receive valuable insight into the entire HEDIS process.

  • A single-user e-pub version of Volume 2 - Technical Specifications and (more importantly) another e-pub of Volume 2 that includes all changes and clarifications from the October Technical Update. Only available through HUG membership!
