2Quality Healthcare: Measuring Nurse Practitioner PerformanceAs healthcare continues to evolve so does the need for patients to have access to the healthcare that they need and feel confident in the care they are receiving. There are organizations that was formed to make sure that this was being done appropriately such as The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) this organization was formed to make sure that patients are receiving the care the deserve and they also measure the patients outcomes and then off of this they set standards of care, within my paper I will discuss HEDIS and what this does such as it’s a measurement of the performance that healthcare providers give to the patient and it is used by millions of health insurance companies (NCQA, 2019). HEDIS stands for Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set. Also, within my paper I will discuss three patient interventions and how as I transition into the new role of a nurse practitioner would be able to measure my outcomes of care that was delivered. I will also go over how this will improve the patient outcomes and the ways for cost saving within our practice. The conclusion of this paper will discuss patient interventions HEDIS has six different domains where healthcare is measured. The three interventions that I have decided on is Effectiveness of Care and Cardiovascular Conditions (NCQA, 2019). The interventions within these domains is prevention and screenings, which include the adult BMI Assessment and Weight Assessment and what counseling and how nutrition and increasing physical activity (NCQA, 2019). My final intervention will be listed under Cardiovascular conditions which is HTN or high blood pressure and ways to control and prevent.
