There are three sources of data that are used for HEDIS. These three sources include administrative, hybrid, and patient survey.
Administrative data collection measures the claims for procedures, hospitalizations, medical visits, and pharmacy data.
Hybrid data collection occurs if there is more data needed to create a better overall picture. In this case, administrative data is combined with that member’s medical record information.
Patient survey is a method for HEDIS data collection that focuses on the patient experience. This data is collected via a survey conducted by the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS).
