    Hi Lisa,
    I know about ACO, and I have worked on this quality program two years in a row. It even shares some the same measures as HEDIS like HTN, Diabetes, Preventive Measure Screenings, and Heart Failure.

    The program is similar to HEDIS except you will be abstracting for CMS patients instead of private insurance companies. The good thing is if you have no experience abstracting this is good way gain experience.

    The downside is the program has a shorter timeline than HEDIS and from my experience does not pay as much.

    If you do this it can lead to other things. I am not even a nurse but I have done clinical data abstraction for nine years working with quality measures and oncology.

    I am hoping 2018 is the year I work with HEDIS program. Let me know how you are working the ACO program.

    Not sure where you are but MediSys is currently looking for nurses to do HEDISYS in Pennsylvania, about 45 mins from Philadelphia. I believe they will train for free.


    If interested, please send me a private message and I will directly connect you with the office for a quicker response.
