Slide notes:For a more detailed review, HEDIS has a number of categories and specific measures within those categories. One category includes effectiveness-of-care measures, such as childhood and adult immunization; use of beta blockers after myocardial infarction [my-o-car-dee- ul in- farc -shun] or MI [M-I]; screening for various types of cancer; and a number of measures related to chronic diabetes care. Another category includes measures on access and availability to care, such as access to preventive health measures, how available primary care providers are, and how soon prenatal care is initiated. HEDIS also has measures related to satisfaction with care, including member satisfaction surveys and the use of various services such as preventive measures. These measures allow health plans to compare themselves to other health plans. 6
