Increasing HEDIS WCC Adherence - Impact of Days Hospitalized

Project Description: A key HEDIS measure for Ped-i-Care is the total number of children that received six or more well-child visits with a PCP during their first 15 months of life (WCC15). Anecdotal data provides evidence that a sub-set of the Ped-i-Care membership spends significant time in the hospital during the first 15 months of life. This time in the hospital may inadvertently impact adherence rates, as the HEDIS WCC criteria does not adjust for in-patient stays. We would like to engage in review of Ped-i-Care data to better understand the number of children who experience in-patient stays, the length of stay and how this may impact the data we report to the state of Florida.
