I am RN, BSN, that has 8+ years of Neonatal ICU experience, and 2 years and counting of pediatric physiatry experience. Recently, I have been looking for a change and have researched about HEDIS nursing. The allure of HEDIS nursing was the schedule flexibility, the ability to work from home, and the autonomy. I am friendly, detailed-oriented, and are used to taking calls from difficult people. I am recently in the middle of a HEDIS online training course at HEDISworks.com. For chart review, I haven't done it as a job but my office does receive charts for referrals and I do have to read through the charts and take out what we need and put in our own office template.
I am wondering how to go about looking for a HEDIS nurse job? What other training do I need to stand out for a potential employer? I want response from any nurses that have experience in this field, how long have you been doing it, do you like it, if you get a HEDIS job do companies offer health insurance? What companies do I need to seek out to send a resume? What is your favorite and least favorite part of your job? Any and all information is appreciate!
Congratulations for taking the HEDIS training.
I am a HEDIS abstractor nurse for the last 6 years and also an instructor on HEDIS training. Remember that the more you know the better chances you will have to get the job. I hope that your training also included QSHR, QNTX software programs. IT is important to know these programs. Companies do offer health insurance at a reasonable price. I truly love working in this field and the pay is great!
Keep up the good work.
Did you pay for the pedis training at HEDISworks.com out of pocket? Have you gotten any offers yet.
