Medicaid’s June Vital Signs

The June 2019 update of the Medicaid Vital Signs dashboard expands on previous iterations by taking a look at how the Mississippi Division of Medicaid’s coordinated care organizations (CCOs) have performed in managing certain common disease states among their members. The CCOs are required to report HEDIS data to the Division on a regular basis. HEDIS, which stands for Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set, is a collection of standardized performance measures developed to compare different managed care plans. This month spotlights quality measures associated with diabetes mellitus and hypertension. Additional measures and disease states will be highlighted in future updates.
