Hi Victoria, Thanks so much for your post and website. My name is Lori Baeumler and I am seriously considering becoming a HEDIS Abstractor nurse but I know nothing about it. Would you be able to email me whenever you have time so you can tell me more about your experience with HEDIS? Thanks so very much and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Best!

You can pretty much forget about being hired unless you already have experience in HEDIS. You probably need to take a HEDIS certification training course and this still doesn't get you a job. It will help a little. I took the course in August of this year through carenational.com. It was an online course that took a week to complete. Care national is on facebook too. It is a hiring agency that recruits HEDIS nurses. Kimberly Williams teaches the course and she is wonderful. I got as far as an interview with United Health Care, but didn't get the job. It was offering $35/hour. Sometimes if people quit after HEDIS season starts and they are in a pinch for someone to take their place, they will give someone a chance that doesn't have experience. Also, you can start out as a chart chaser the first year and that's a good way to get your foot in the door with HEDIS. These are the people that go to the offices and get the charts ready for the abstractors. These jobs don't pay as much , but will get your foot in the door to maybe work as an abstractor the following year. Carenational offers a course for chart chasers too. You are also graded on your accuracy with a score and you have a chart quota and deadlines to meet. I'm sure just like any job. You learn as you go, but it sounded stressful to me. I ended up finding another work from home nursing job with less stress and benefits, although the pay isn't $35/hour...but I'll take it....
