The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) maintains its focus on behavioral health quality measures by continually updating and improving its performance measurement tool known as the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS). During this Virtual Forum, experts from NCQA – Junqing Liu, PhD, MSW, Research Scientist; Lauren Niles, MPH, Senior Health Care Analyst; and Nora Fritz, BA, Health Care Analyst – present a brief background on measure development, performance of current HEDIS behavioral health measures, future work around treatment for substance use disorders and pain management, and identifications of gaps in care and challenges related to HEDIS behavioral health measures (e.g. unhealthy alcohol use screening and follow-up, depression screening and followup).
