HEDIS public comment and NCQA’s most popular webinar series converge in an important event on February 24.
The quarterly webinars that comprise* our Future of HEDIS webinar series are the most subscribed and best-attended virtual events NCQA has ever offered. The next installment in the series–Digital Measures and Health Equity on Wednesday, February 24, 2:30 PM ET–is bound to be another big hit.
NCQA founder and president Peggy O’Kane will kick things off with an overview of the “Why?” and “How?” of updating HEDIS. Our top doctor in charge of quality measurement and research, Michael Barr, will review recurring themes and initiatives that define where HEDIS is headed.
Then two rising stars and subject matter experts will cover topics that are the focus of a month-long HEDIS public comment. Senior Health Care Analyst Fern McCree will cover new ideas on reporting Electronic Clinical Data System (ECDS) measures. NCQA Research Scientist Rachel Harrington will discuss suggestions for using HEDIS to improve health equity,
Sign-ups for this free, 1-hour discussion are off to a strong start. If you have questions about the public comment period that just opened, or if you’re curious what HEDIS will look like in 2, 3 or 10 years, the February 24 webinar is one you’ll want to attend.
