Given its innovative technology approach and architecture, data can be updated and HEDIS® run in less than one hour for 1 million members. This gives plans the ability to run HEDIS® frequently -- daily, weekly, monthly -- and constantly move the bar in the right direction on quality outcomes.
"NCQA's HEDIS® program is the national standard in all lines of business for quality monitoring and reporting. MedHOK is pleased to be among the vendors to achieve full certification. Certification puts MedHOK in an elite group of products able to pass the rigorous HEDIS® review, confirming our commitment to enhancing clinical outcomes, care management and quality measures performance.

- A complete integrated hybrid measures solution, which includes creation of the hybrid sample, algorithms to target providers, scheduling, hybrid medical chart review project management, a chart abstraction tool, and upload and attachment of the required medical chart documentation. The hybrid measure tool can be used by plan personnel, temporary staff, or outside medical chart review organizations.
- Expert and qualified medical chart review capabilities
- Integration of administrative and hybrid data for review and analysis
- Production and submission of final administrative and hybrid HEDIS® submissions
"With quality and performance improvement at the forefront of national healthcare initiatives, plans must move from the old paradigm of infrequent reviews to year-round, continuous quality improvement. MedHOK's systems will help plans continue to succeed by improving scores and reaping increased membership and bonus revenue," added Kottoor.
