Health plans need to be comprehensive to truly address the needs of plan members. Employers taking health plans for their staff need to ensure that they take ones that cover all relevant aspects of their employees’ health so they are not faced with denied claims or other such issues. But just how do employers know whether they’ve taken the right plan for their staff? Outsource Strategies International (OSI) offers comprehensive HEDIS measurement and QIP solutions for health plans and healthcare providers.

HEDIS (Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set) is a relevant standard that helps to measure the quality and effectiveness of a health plan. This standard of measures makes it possible for a health plan to be compared with other health plans and assessed objectively.
It is a reliable means for employers to know the kind of care or provisions their employees will receive with a particular plan in relation to other plans in important areas of healthcare. HEDIS can enable employers to select the right plan for their staff, and thereby ensure their satisfaction.
For Health Plans
It also serves the needs of health plans. It helps insurance providers to improve their health plans with the help of the objective comparison data provided. They can make their product better and more competitive. HEDIS has been developed by the NCQA (National Committee for Quality Assurance), and is relied upon by over 90% of health plans in the United States for measuring their performance.
The areas of relevance covered include crucial matters of public health such as cancer, asthma, diabetes, smoking and heart disease. And when HEDIS reveals shortcomings in health plans, it is time to take up the QIP (Quality Improvement Program) to improve them.
HOW QIP HELPS
QIP is how health plans can be made more accommodating and useful, and the care areas improved. A good QIP can help improve the availability, accessibility, continuity, coordination and quality of the service offered to plan members. It also includes initiatives to avoid errors and ensure safety of the members. With the light shown by HEDIS standards, it could help make the health plan better. These measures provide the underlying guidelines for QIP initiatives.
