Helping you help others

HEDIS® Toolkit

This is the New Directions Behavioral Health (New Directions®) Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) Provider Toolkit. HEDIS was developed by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA®). HEDIS is a set of performance measures used in the healthcare industry, is part of NCQA accreditation, and is an essential activity for New Directions to ensure members receive the highest quality care from providers. The purpose of this toolkit is to offer better understanding of the 2022 Measurement Year HEDIS behavioral health performance measures and to provide guidance to healthcare providers on how they can help improve the quality of care and performance on the HEDIS measures.

Improving health through positive change: that is our company mission and what each of our employees live by every day. Members receive care that is coordinated, focused on whole-person health and customized to fit the unique needs of the individual.

Our goal is to help you help others. Providers are at the heart of health care delivery, serving members when they are most vulnerable, suffering from mental illness or impacted by trauma. A better quality of life for our members starts with you.
