Note:
HEDIS data is not available for public posting for this MTF at this time. The process to get data for public posting from the new electronic health record used at this MTF is still being developed and will be available soon.

Disclaimer:

We are in the process of updating many of our measures. All measures should be updated by December 1st.

  • One measure is not an indication of a facility's quality. Sometimes a smaller population can make a measure move pretty drastically from quarter to quarter, so don't be alarmed if you see a dip or a spike.
  • If there is no data included with the description of the measures below, it may be because your facility doesn't offer that particular service or treatment.
  • Some data is reported every month or quarter and some is reported once a year. Occasionally, a measure is no longer used. But we continue to provide the data from past years as a reference.
  • The dates we report data may vary by measure. Measuring quality, safety, access and patient experience requires time to ensure data is valid and accurate.
  • We report the same Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) used by many civilian health care practices to monitor quality of care provided in the MHS. Before posting HEDIS data, a National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) certified auditor reviews and approves the measure process and data.
  • We report some of the measures in Calendar Year (CY) and some measures in Fiscal Year (FY). Calendar years begin on January 1st. Fiscal years begin on October 1st.
  • If you have questions, please contact the Patient Administration office at your military medical treatment facility or a beneficiary counseling and assistance coordinator

Quality of Care

There are many factors the Military Health System tracks related to Quality of Care. For your convenience we have categorized these in the below sections:

  • Low Back Pain Imaging

    Evidence shows that many patients diagnosed with low back pain receive excessive medical tests that can lead to unnecessary worry and unneeded surgery. For the majority of individuals who experience severe low back pain, pain improves after two weeks. Avoiding imaging tests like x-ray, MRI, and CT scans can prevent harm to patients and reduce health care costs. Data shown for this HEDIS measure is the most recently approved by NCQA.

    What we measure

    We measure the percentage of adults age 18 to 50 years with a primary diagnosis of low back pain who didn’t have an imaging test (e.g., plain X-ray, MRI or CT scan) within 28 days of the diagnosis. A higher score means a better performance. Talk with your provider about alternatives to unnecessary medical tests for low back pain, and discuss alternatives to surgery for addressing your pain.

    This is one of the measures from the Core Quality Measures Collaborative.  Additional information can be found at: http://www.qualityforum.org/CQMC/

  • Mental Health Follow Up 30 Days

    Patients hospitalized to treat mental illness need follow up care. This follow up care helps make sure the progress made during the patient’s hospital stay transitions to the home or work environment. It also helps your health care team catch problems that might arise after leaving the hospital. Data shown for this HEDIS measure is the most recently approved by NCQA.

    What we measure

    We measure the percentage of discharges of individuals age 6 years and older who had a follow-up outpatient visit within 7 days and 30 days of discharge after being hospitalized for treatment of certain mental illnesses. If you have recently been discharged from a hospital for mental health care, please keep any scheduled appointments. If you aren’t sure if you have an appointment, call your mental health provider and schedule one.

    This is one of the measures from the Core Quality Measures Collaborative.  Additional information can be found at: http://www.qualityforum.org/CQMC/

  • Well-Child Visits in the first 15 Months of Life

    In the first 15 months of a child’s life, there are a number of preventive and monitoring services. These early services may lead to lifelong health and wellness. Data shown for this HEDIS measure is the most recently approved by NCQA.

    What we measure

    We measure the number of well-child visits in the first 15 months of life, for both military and civilian appointments. Our goal is a child will have 6 well-child visits during these 15 months.

    This measure sees if military children have timely, easy access to health care services. If you recently moved or changed providers, talk with your new doctor about what appointments your child has already had.
