Improve Your HEDIS Measures by Closing Patient Care Gaps

Improving performance on HEDIS measures is a vital objective for any healthcare practice. These measures play a significant role in determining reimbursements and reflect the quality of patient care provided. One effective way to boost these scores is by closing patient care gaps.


HealthHelper focuses on the closure of care gaps to enhance HEDIS scores. Our approach combines advanced technology with personalized patient care coordination, ensuring that healthcare providers can efficiently identify and address gaps in patient care… without creating extra work for practice staff.


Understanding the Impact of Care Gaps and Closing Patient Care Gaps

Care gaps represent missed opportunities in preventive care, chronic disease management, or health screenings. These care gaps can lead to deteriorating patient health and increased costs in the long run. By identifying and addressing these gaps, practices not only improve patient outcomes but also demonstrate adherence to quality standards, which are crucial for performing well on HEDIS metrics.


HealthHelper’s Strategy for Closing Patient Care Gaps

Our solution involves a comprehensive 5 key approach:


Data-Driven Identification: We leverage data analytics to identify care gaps within the patient population. This includes utilizing EHR data, population health tool reports (e.g. Arcadia, Epic Healthy Planet, DignifiHealth, etc.), and predictive modeling to target areas that need attention.


Patient Outreach and Engagement: We understand that patient engagement is key. Our methods involve personalized communication and scheduling strategies that are tailored to each patient’s preferences, increasing the likelihood of them completing necessary treatments or screenings.


Continuous Learning and Adaptation: We analyze outcomes and refine our strategies based on data, ensuring that our methods are always aligned with the best practices and most effective approaches.


Collaborative Care Coordination: Working closely with healthcare providers, we ensure seamless integration of our strategies into existing workflows, emphasizing the importance of a team-based approach in healthcare.
