HEDIS® Measurement Year 2020 – continuing the pursuit of a core set of meaningful measures

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) HEDIS® set of quality measures is considered by many to be the gold standard when it comes to quality measurement. NCQA continues to pursue a strategy to find a core set of meaningful measures that will allow for the harmonization of performance measurement across the healthcare industry. As such, NCQA will retire a number of measures, streamline and modify existing measures, and add a small number of meaningful measures for HEDIS Measurement Year 2020 (HEDIS MY 2020). This is the first in a four-part blog series in which we’ll be discussing these changes and sharing tips on understanding and incorporating them into your HEDIS strategy.
