You may have heard us use the term HEDIS before so we want to share what that means. HEDIS stands for Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set.
HEDIS includes precisely defined health measures to keep our military members and their families well. The health measures are consistent with those used by leading healthcare systems and fit the national definition of access, safety and quality care.
HEDIS measures a broad range of important health issues on a regular basis. Please check the following services to see if it is time to schedule an appointment. Call the Central Appointment Line at 06371-9464-5762.
