Quality Improvement Program

Sanford Health Plan has implemented a quality improvement program designed to monitor, evaluate and improve the quality, safety, and appropriateness of the health care services our members receive.


HEDIS (Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set) is a set of standardized performance measures designed to ensure that purchasers and consumers have the information they need to reliably compare health care quality. Quality improvement activities, population health programs and practitioner profiling efforts have all used HEDIS as a core measurement set.
