HEDIS Learning Collaborative

NCQA convened a learning collaborative in 2016 to help develop an innovative method to report HEDIS measures using data from electronic clinical data systems (ECDS). We piloted this method with a set of measures for depression care.

What was the HEDIS® Learning Collaborative?

The overall goal of the learning collaborative was to help health plans report measures using a new reporting method and to:

  • Identify how plans can use electronic clinical data sources to report plan-level results for HEDIS measures.
  • Understand the availability of electronic clinical data to health plans.
  • Refine HEDIS guidelines for measure reporting and auditing.

Learning Collaborative Participants

Plans collaborated with NCQA and each other to learn about approaches to aggregating electronic clinical data. Their findings helped NCQA develop reporting and audit guidelines to use in future ECDS HEDIS measures.
