State Employee Health Care Quality and Health Disparities Report

The primary goal of the State and Public School Employee Life and Health Insurance plan is to deliver high quality, appropriate care, in a timely way to enrollees.

Substantive efforts have been undertaken by individual clinicians, hospitals, and the state's quality improvement organization, the Arkansas Foundation for Medical Care. Arkansans have enjoyed a narrowing gap between what we know should happen and what does happen in clinical settings across the state. However, we consistently observe differences between what the Arkansas health care system delivers and what nationally achieved benchmarks have demonstrated are attainable.

ACHI worked with the Employee Benefits Division’s (EBD) Quality Subcommittee to conduct an analysis of their Health Plan Employer Data Information Set (HEDIS) measurements.  This information provides the basis for EBD to create a mechanism to incentivize health care providers who meet quality standards in health care delivery and preventive care to enrollees.
