Hospital Measures Overview

 Learn more about hospital measures with our new self-paced course Hospital Measures Overview.

The online course covers:

  • Hospital measure definitions
  • How to identify measures
  • Recognizing measures as patients transition from hospital to home
  • How to take action on measures

Course overview

The aim of the course is to provide tools on the various Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) measures related to care given in a hospital and as patients transition home. It goes over hospital measures to help highlight the correlation and differences between each one.

When hospital measures are addressed as a whole and individually, it may help improve patient engagement, reduce readmissions, improve transitions of care, improve the patient experience and help members live healthier lives.

You’ll also find ways to help improve HEDIS® compliance, reduce organizational costs and ultimately improve Star Rating performance.
