REGISTER TODAY: The ABCs of HEDIS on November 13th or 14th, 2013

Coding and performance measures have never been more critical to the financial and clinical success of a physician. The Kentuckiana Health Collaborative (KHC), in conjunction with the Greater Louisville Medical Society, is presenting community-based education for physicians and practice managers on The Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS).

The KHC provides annual reports to more than 1,000 clinicians in Greater Louisville on the quality of care their patients receive for a variety of clinical areas using HEDIS measures. These reports allow providers to benchmark their own data to a community average and benchmark. Additionally, HEDIS measures are used by more than 90 percent of health plans nationwide to measure performance on important dimensions of care and service.

During this session you will gain a better understanding of what HEDIS measures are, how they are related to your daily patient care and practice operations, and which factors determine whether or not a patient will be included in your score for a measure. You will also learn how coding impacts scores and how HEDIS data can improve practice patterns and patient care. Sessions will give practical examples based on key measures and patient populations.

The sessions will be led by Sharon Murphy, BSN, RN, CHCQM, ALNCC. Sharon has years of experience in quality of care management, including areas such as evaluation and recommendations based on peer-reviewed literature and guidelines, initiatives and work plans for improvement, oversight, and NCQA recognition.

Please see the information below for dates and registration. Physicians and Practice Managers are invited to attend a 60-minute webinar or a 90-minute classroom session. Attendees may choose from one of multiple session times being offered. There will be a free email Q&A service available for seven days following attendance at one of the seminars.
