Using one of the quality improvement models (Lean, PDSA, or Six Sigma), explain how you would use the model to implement the two chosen HEDIS® Measures.

After reading Chapter 1 through 4, you should be familiar with quality improvement initiatives including NCQA’s HEDIS® measures. Health plans and physicians must ensure they are meeting standards set by  the accreditation agencies, such as NCQA. As a physician practice manager for Dr. Jones, you have just conducted a mock survey of the patient chart data. The data shows that your physician practice is not meeting standards for two HEDIS® measures.

• Choose two HEDIS® measures (from the list below either a, b, c, d, e or f) that must be implemented in a physician practice to improve patient outcomes.
• Describe the sources of data needed to conduct the two measures.
• Using one of the quality improvement models (Lean, PDSA, or Six Sigma), explain how you would use the model to implement the two chosen HEDIS® Measures.

Your initial post should be 250-300 words and utilize at least one scholarly source from the Ashford University Library to justify your choice of improvement models. Cite all sources in APA format as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
