MedeAnalytics Quality Management Achieves 2018 Certification from NCQA for HEDIS Certified MeasuresSM

Richardson, Texas – (March 20, 2018) MedeAnalytics today announced that the administrative measure logic in its Quality Management product has achieved 2018 National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) certification for the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS)® measures. In addition to having HEDIS Certified Measures, MedeAnalytics Quality Management enables users to identify and close gaps in care, prepare for HEDIS and STAR Ratings submissions and audits and engage providers in year-round evidence-gathering. Combined with its ability to gather and monitor chart-abstracted data, MedeAnalytics Quality Management strengthens a health plan’s reputation and increases reimbursement potential.

HEDIS is a tool used by more than 90 percent of America's health plans to measure performance on important dimensions of care and service. NCQA’s Measure CertificationSM is precise, automated testing that verifies compliance with HEDIS Specifications and satisfies the source code review portion of the HEDIS Compliance Audit™.

“Healthcare spending in the United States has skyrocketed to $3 trillion a year, with no signs of slowing down. As a result, forward-thinking payers have adopted new mindsets and approaches to data and the frequency at which they measure HEDIS compliance and quality,” said Paul Kaiser, chief executive officer of MedeAnalytics. “Our latest HEDIS certification validates our commitment to continually ensure our products meet industry standards that help our clients improve HEDIS compliance and enhance patient outcomes throughout the year.”

MedeAnalytics Quality Management provides scalable, quality reporting with speed, frequency and integrated analytics power unmatched in the industry. The solution covers HEDIS, P4P, Medicare Star Ratings, AHRQ and custom measures. These measures can be updated daily and are integrated within a platform that enables member and claim-level granularity, all with audit and chase support built-in.

Some of the nation’s top health plans that leverage Quality Management have achieved tremendous results, including:

  • Reduction in time spent updating measure rates, enabling faster refreshes of data and rates
  • 30 percent reduction in time spent chart chasing
  • 95 percent reduction in third party vendor and temporary help costs

Quality Management is part of MedeAnalytics’ Value Based Performance product line, which also includes Population Health. Health plans, delivery systems, ACOs and clinically integrated networks that leverage Population Health can gain unparalleled insight into clinical quality, utilization and cost metrics.
