NEW! Quality Patient Experience Guide

CareSource is working with providers to build a positive health care experience for patients.

CareSource wants to put our best foot forward when it comes to partnering with our providers. That’s why we created the new Quality Patient Experience Guide. The guide outlines 7 ways we can fulfill our joint commitment to delivering a positive experience.

The guide covers the topics addressed in annual satisfaction surveys such as the Qualified Health Plan Enrollee Experience (QHPEE) surveys. We hope you find it to be a helpful resource for programs and services that support you and your CareSource patients.

View the Quality Patient Experience Guide to learn more. We appreciate all that you do to provide quality care!

 


Marketplace Providers: Telehealth HEDIS Measure Quick Reference Guide is Available!

The landscape of telehealth has quickly evolved over the past year.  Recent policy changes have expanded the use of telehealth to deliver acute, chronic, primary and specialty care to preserve and support the patient-provider relationship.

CareSource has developed the Telehealth HEDIS® Measure Quick Reference Guide to provide guidance for activities where telehealth visits, and their related claims, may contribute to measurable quality outcomes in HEDIS® (Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set). This list is not inclusive of every health care service with a telehealth component.
