Use of HEDIS scores
As state and federal governments move toward a health care industry driven by quality, HEDIS rates are becoming more and more important to the health plan, the individual and the provider. State purchasers of health care use the aggregated HEDIS rates to evaluate the effectiveness of a health insurance company’s preventive health outreach efforts. Physician-specific scores are being used as evidence of preventive care from primary care office practices. These rates then serve as a basis for physician profiling and incentive programs.
2023 HEDIS and HIPAA
As a reminder, protected health information (PHI) that is used or disclosed for purposes of treatment, payment or health care operations is permitted by HIPAA privacy rules (45 CFR 164.506). It also doesn’t require consent or authorization from the member or patient. The medical record review staff and/or vendor will have a signed HIPAA-compliant Business Associate.
