FLORENCE, S.C. — Select Health of South Carolina surprised HopeHealth providers during a recent staff meeting with an award recognizing their HEDIS accomplishments.

HEDIS, or Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set, is a comprehensive set of standardized performance measures designed to help with comparing health plan performance.

Select Health is the largest Medicaid Managed Care Organization in the state, and many of its patients are in care at HopeHealth sites.

The organization named HopeHealth a top performer based on the HEDIS measures achieved and presented the Excellence in Quality Award in recognition for outstanding achievement in quality care to Dr. Brinda Chokshi, a HopeHealth physician at the Medical Plaza, who accepted on behalf of all providers.

“Of all the providers of medical care in South Carolina, HopeHealth providers met more HEDIS measure goals than any other in 2018,” said Nathaniel J. Patterson, DrPH, director of quality management at Select Health.

HopeHealth is one of 23 nonprofit, federally qualified health centers in South Carolina. It provides quality and affordable health care services to individuals in Florence, Clarendon and Williamsburg Counties and infectious diseases services in Aiken, Clarendon, Florence, Orangeburg and Williamsburg counties.
