Mary's Center maintains data on annual outcomes from our medical, social, and education programs.
Mary's Center evaluates program outcomes in the context of our Continuous Quality Improvement plan. This plan, updated annually, specifies the measures we examine and actions we take to ensure quality.
As part of our Continuous Quality Improvement program, we track HEDIS measures for selected medical services. HEDIS refers to the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set, a tool developed by the National Committee for Quality Assurance that is used by most U.S. health plans to measure performance.
