HEDIS® Measure Development Process
Developing a measure is a multi-step process. It involves identifying the clinical area to evaluate; conducting an extensive literature review; developing the measure with the appropriate MAP and other panels; vetting it with various stakeholders; and performing a field-test that looks at feasibility, reliability and validity.

Desirable Attributes of HEDIS
Whether considering the value of a new measure or the continuing worth of an existing one, we must define what makes a measure desirable. These attributes were designed to assess measures for comparison among health care systems, not measures for quality improvement. These are some of the questions we ask when developing a measure.
