Data Quality and Reporting Guide

About the Guide

This Data Quality and Reporting Guide takes you through steps and activities to ensure your practice is able to report valid and reliable data for selected population health measures. The measures covered in this guide consist of seven Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) measures designated as core measures by the PHMI program and 10 additional supplemental measures. All measures use standard HEDIS definitions and are aligned with CalAIM and APM 2.0. This guide is currently designed for community health centers and how they are paid, but can be adapted by other practices.
