iCare Wins Aetna 5 Star HEDIS Quality Provider Award for Superior Outreach Services

iCare Health Solutions has been honored with the Aetna 2017 Five Star HEDIS Quality Provider award.

iCare, based in South Florida, has partnered with Aetna since 2013, providing optometric, medical eye care, and Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) services in the state of Florida.

iCare’s Retinal In5ights HEDIS program provides customized solutions to assist health plans and medical groups in closing their non-compliant diabetic retinal exam (DRE) HEDIS care gap metric.

The 5 Star HEDIS Quality Provider award was presented to iCare Health Solutions at the Aetna Vendor Expo. The expo’s purpose was to train and educate companies on upcoming Medicare benefits.

This highly exclusive award recognizes vendors for obtaining the “gold standard” in performance. iCare is among only 21 vendors out of thousands to win the award this year.

In honoring iCare, Aetna said, “The employees at iCare excel at addressing matters quickly, efficiently and thoughtfully. iCare’s innovative HEDIS management capabilities have played a leading role in improving diabetic vision outcomes for our members.”

HEDIS is used by more than 90 percent of America’s health plans to measure performance on care and service. Employers use HEDIS data to help select the best health plan for their needs. Consumers also benefit from HEDIS data through the State of Health Care Quality report, a comprehensive look at the performance of the U.S. health care system.

“We’re grateful to Aetna for this special honor, and for being such a great partner in improving health care over our 14-year collaboration,” said Dr. Sidney J. Stern, who founded iCare Health Solutions in 1982.
