Measuring Success in a Value-based Healthcare System
The U.S. healthcare system is gradually changing from a fee-for-service model to value-based payment designs. Success is measured by the Five Star Quality Rating System, which was developed by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to hold health plans, hospital systems and other providers accountable for quality and make the performance data more transparent.

This whitepaper examines five key areas where technology can help automate HEDIS compliance activities to improve Star ratings related to diabetes management, colorectal cancer screening, heart disease and flu vaccinations.

Health plans must be able to automate patient outreach, health screening, results reporting and member compliance – but they don’t have to do it alone.
