Remember Aesop's Fables? One of the most famous, "The Ant and the Grasshopper," tells of a careful ant that stored up food for the winter. The grasshopper put this task off until the last minute and would have starved during the winter if not for the ant’s help. The moral to the story: "It’s best to prepare for the days of necessity."
Although HEDIS submission occurs only once a year, quality departments are steadily increasing the number of prospective data runs they conduct before that final deadline. Just like the industrious ant, 80 percent of those attending our webinar said that they perform at least two prospective runs each year, with many assessing their performance monthly.
