Medicaid’s September Vital Signs

The September 2019 update of the Medicaid Vital Signs dashboard continues to examine 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 includes quality measures related to diabetes mellitus and obesity.
