HEDIS Measures for Diabetes in Texas

Insurance State law requires basic service health maintenance organizations (HMOs) to report Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) measures, including five measures related to diabetes, to the Texas Health Care Information Collection (THCIC). THCIC was created in 1995 to establish the state’s health care data collection system. 

The Guide to Texas HMO Quality is an annual report on HMO quality of care measures. The Office of Public Insurance Counsel uses the HEDIS measures to create this report. Texas law requires HMOs to report HEDIS measures each year to the Department of State Health Services. The measures reflect many significant public health issues such as cancer, heart disease, smoking, diabetes, and the care of pregnant women and children.
