Why Should You Comment?
NCQA HEDIS measures are based on published clinical guidelines and scientific evidence. When guidelines change or new evidence becomes available in the scientific literature, NCQA reviews measures to determine if changes may be needed. NCQA convenes multi-stakeholder advisory panels—including independent scientists, clinicians, health plans, purchasers, government and consumer groups—to ensure that measures meet and balance the high standards of relevance, scientific soundness and feasibility.
Public review and comment is an important part of developing and updating HEDIS measures. NCQA reviews all comments received during public comment, and presents results to advisory panels and to the NCQA Committee on Performance Measurement for deliberation.
How Can You Comment?
This year’s public comment will go live on Monday, October 2, at 9:00 AM ET.
We’ll post the link and more details here, so check back!
