HEDIS® highlight


Aetna strives to provide quality health care to our membership as measured through the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set® (HEDIS®) performance measures.

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) developed these measures, which allow direct, objective comparison of quality across health plans. NCQA publishes the results of the HEDIS measures in its State of Health Care Quality (SOHCQ) report each year.

The 2018 report shows an improvement in the initiation and engagement of alcohol and other drug dependence treatment measures. However, our behavioral health plan is showing a downward trend in this area. We want to work with you to improve our HEDIS rates. We’d like your feedback on how we can partner with you to provide better patient care. Just email our Quality Improvement department with your suggestions.
