Making HEDIS and Tails of Plans

What the heck is HEDIS?

HEDIS stands for Health Plan Employer Data and Information Set.

It is a measurement tool that compares how well FEHB health plans perform for patients with specific needs.

Included in the measures are cancer, heart disease, asthma, and even post-partum care.
