Hints for HEDIS® (and more)

April was National Alcohol Awareness Month, and this month’s Hints for HEDIS will focus on the quality measure of Follow-Up After Emergency Department Visit for Substance Use (FUA).

National Alcohol Awareness Month aims to educate the public about one of America’s top health problems: alcohol dependence, a problem that Rhode Island primary care providers may encounter frequently in their practices.
