Benefits for Health Plans

MCIR benefits health care organizations by consolidating immunization information from multiple providers. This reduces vaccine preventable diseases, over-vaccination, and allows providers and other authorized users to see up-to-date patient immunization history.

Most Michigan health plans utilize the MCIR/HEDIS* extract process to supplement or provide their administrative data for annual HEDIS measurement. Some health plans have had so much success with the MCIR/HEDIS extract data that they have been able to eliminate annual chart audits.

*HEDIS is the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set, a registered trademark of the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
