Hi there,

I am an LPN currently working on an ACT team. I am actively seeking another position and was considering taking a class in HEDIS. It is a one day class, and there is a cost. I know these positions are usually temporary, however, my question is does anyone know if having this training on my resume would help me land a permanent position? Or will I just be wasting money?

What is HEDIS?
HEDIS is a tool used by more than 90 percent of America's health plans to measure performance on important dimensions of care and service. Because so many plans collect HEDIS data, and because the measures are so specifically defined, HEDIS makes it possible to compare the performance of health plans on an "apples-to-apples" basis. Health plans also use HEDIS results themselves to see where they need to focus their improvement efforts.
