TAMPA, Fla. (July 25, 2017) – Premier Eye Care is pleased to announce the promotion of Crissia Corbitt to Director of the HEDIS®.  Corbitt will oversee this fully dedicated internal team, which reports directly to the Chief Medical Officer.

In her new role, Corbitt will lead Premier’s HEDIS®️ team, supporting all languages, who work throughout the year with health plans, members, and providers to bring DRE screenings to in-office and out-of-office settings including health fairs and mobile screenings.

“Crissia brings the experience and strong leadership required to manage and implement our robust, quality-focused program for HEDIS®,” said Michael Hecht, O.D., Chief Medical Officer. “She brings valued leadership and a depth of industry knowledge to our team.”

HEDIS®️ provides benchmarks for preventative health screenings. In the space of ophthalmic care, an essential benchmark is the Diabetic Retinal Exam that screens for sight threatening Diabetic Retinopathy. Achieving 5 STARS for DRE, the highest ranking, points to excellent quality of care for health plan members.
