Get Started – HEDIS Users Group

If you’re involved in the implementation of HEDIS, there is no better way to master performance measurement than by joining the NCQA HEDIS Users Group (HUG). The HUG offers access to the most up-to-date information on HEDIS specifications so you can begin planning for the future. By joining with others who spend their time producing, reporting and interpreting HEDIS data, you will learn first-hand about the latest developments in performance measurement and receive valuable insight into the entire HEDIS process.
