Data Submission Details
NCQA collects HEDIS® survey results directly from health plans and PPOs through the Healthcare Organization Questionnaire (HOQ), and collects non-survey data though the Interactive Data Submission System (IDSS).
HEDIS data help calculate national performance statistics and benchmarks, and set standards for measures in NCQA Accreditation.
With plan permission, commercial data are also included in Quality Compass®. Health plans, purchasers, consultants and the media use Quality Compass data for comparative health plan performance analyses.
