About this On Demand Training

Emerging Strategies for Telehealth, HEDIS and NCQA Products

The founder, top doctor and chief architect of NCQA products discuss what telehealth, reporting of Electronic Clinical Data Systems data and other innovations mean for HEDIS and NCQA evaluation services such as Health Plan Accreditation.

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.
