I'm getting started calculating HEDIS healthcare quality measures (http://www.ncqa.org/HEDISQualityMeasurement.aspx) using health claims data. These calculations involve use of long lists of diagnostic and procedure codes and follow some pretty complicated logic. The National Committee for Quality Assurance sells the code to do these calculations, however we aren't sure whether we'll use measures in the long term and are only calculating a few of the 50+ measures. So, I'm creating my own code, based on their technical specifications. Would anyone else have already written "home grown" code for any of these measures, that you'd be willing to share with me? I'm not looking for a copy of the NCQA software, but thought that it would be worth checkin on whether someone else had already dug this deep well and was willing to share with me/my employer (a state agency).
This is my first post to this (or to any SAS forum), so if this is an inappropriate query, please advise. Thank you very much.

Hi -- I've been programming HEDIS using SAS for years. I realize you posted this quite a while ago and you may be all set, but if not, let me know.

Thanks very much for your response, which I only just noticed. I can't quite determine how I might contact you, but perhaps you could reach me: email@example.com Thank you!
