The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) invites the public to comment on proposed updates to the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) measures. This is an opportunity for health plans, purchasers, consumers and other stakeholders to weigh in on the relevance, scientific soundness and feasibility of new and revised measures and to provide input on HEDIS guidelines.
NCQA seeks comments on the following:
- Retiring five measures.
- Shortening the HEDIS Health Plan CAHPS®2 (CAHPS 5.0H) Survey.
- New HEDIS measures assessing substance use disorder and prenatal and postpartum depression care.
- Revisions to several measures.
- Proposed changes that apply across multiple measures.
