HEDIS Quality Measure: Comprehensive Diabetes Care

  • August 16, 2018

    The HEDIS® Comprehensive diabetes care measure is a composite measure meant to provide a comprehensive picture of the clinical management of patients with diabetes. The comprehensive diabetes care composite measure includes:

    • HbA1c control
    • Retinal eye exams
    • Medical attention for nephropathy
    • Blood pressure control

    Patients with diabetes require consistent medical care and monitoring to reduce the risk of severe complications and improve outcomes. This is why interventions to improve diabetic outcomes go beyond glycemic control, as diabetes affects the entire body.

    View the tip sheet to learn more about what’s included in the measure and ways you can successfully address care opportunities for patients with diabetes. The tip sheet also covers required medical record documentation and claim coding to reduce the need for medical record reviews.
