The tools required in policy are combined into a program called the Quality Improvement System for Managed Care (QISMC).
The second patient self-report component of QISMC is the Health Outcomes Survey (HOS) and is designed to longitudinally measure a health plan's ability to improve health status of individual enrollees (NCQA 1998a, 1998b).
Over time, the States worked with the managed care plans to develop quality assurance/quality improvement systems, using guidelines such as the Health Plan Employer Data and Information Set (HEDIS), Quality Assurance Reform Initiative (QARI), and Quality Improvement System for Managed Care (QISMC).
