How Do We Increase HEDIS Rates?

There are several ways in increase HEDIS rates. These include:

  1. It is important to provide accurate and thorough documentation. Ensure that all services provided to a patient are documented in their medical records. It is also important to double check these medical records to ensure that there are no mistakes or omissions.
  2. Meeting deadlines for services is also important to raise HEDIS rates. This also includes preventative care and other follow up measures and services.
  3. Shifting focus to preventative screenings and providing superior patient care is also important for increasing HEIDS rates. One way to do this is by looking for gaps in well-visits, especially for individuals that are considered high-risk. You should also ensure availability of services by addressing any issues that arise in regards to scheduling appointments.
  4. Including population health management and patient engagement into you plan is also essential for boosting your HEDIS scores. Payers benefit from offering support to provider networks. Direct outreach to engage patients is also encouraged.
