The plan you choose can make a difference in your health! HEDIS (Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set) measures the quality of your health plan and how it performs in preventing and treating conditions. There are large differences between plans!
Visit the HEDIS website to see the many conditions measured, such as breast cancer screening and diabetes care, and to see how your plan compares to the FEHB average.
HEDIS is developed and maintained by the National Committee for Quality Assurance, a not for profit organization committed to assessing, reporting on, and improving the quality of health care.
Your Guide to Choosing Quality Health Care was developed by the Agency for Health Care Research and Quality to help you make health care decisions using information about quality. The Guide is based on research about the information people want and need when choosing health plans, doctors, treatments, hospitals, and long-term care.
The Guide shows how you can use information about quality to improve the quality of health care services you and your family receive. It describes quality measures including consumer ratings, clinical performance measures, and accreditationwhat they are, where to find them, and how to use them. The Guide has checklists, questions, charts, and other tools to help you make the health care decisions that are right for you.
You can find a summary of the major ways you can check for quality health care in the Quick Checks for Quality.
Below, you will find links to non-OPM websites that provide high quality information on assuring quality in health care.
