I have worked with a company that does HEDIS for a few of the above notated insurers; there are some nurses that love the work there (and return every year) and others that will do everything that they can to never go back….it is hit or miss….the nurses that are in Project Management with my former employer know what they are doing and have adequate management skills. They learned their HEDIS Management skills from one of the best HEDIS management nurses in the Pennsylvania/New Jersey/Maryland/Delaware region.
The company that receives the highest praise and does HEDIS as well as ongoing MRR work is Inovalon (formerly MedAssurant). I know a few nurses that work for Inovalon now and they have regular positive feedback. The only complaints that they have every once in a while is that they would like more work….you are at the mercy of the company and its management.
I do have a few good contacts in the Pharma industry so if any of you would like help in that direction, please let me know.
