Richardson, Texas – (June 11, 2019) – MedeAnalytics announced today that the administrative measure logic in its Quality Management product has achieved 2019 National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) certification for Align. Measure. Perform.SM (AMP) Commercial HMO Program. This is an important distinction for the company’s clients because health plans using certified solutions can elevate their reputations and increase their reimbursement potential.
The company is currently one of only 13 software vendors that earned this certification, which allows MedeAnalytics to display, measure and report AMP, formerly known as Value Based Pay for Performance (VBP4P), measures. The AMP program is administered by the Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA) on behalf of 11 health plans, about 200 California physician organizations, representing over 9 million Californians.
There are four key components within AMP program set: a common set of measures and benchmarks that spans clinical quality, patient experience, utilization and cost of care measures; value-based health plan incentive payments to physician organizations; public reporting of Triple Aim performance results for physician organizations; and public recognition awards.
Clients using the MedeAnalytics Quality Management solution have reported:
- A reduction in time updating measures, enabling faster throughput and refresh rates
- 30 percent reduction in time spent “chart chasing”
- 95 percent reduction in third party vendor and temporary help costs
“AMP certification ensures our products help clients improve compliance and patient satisfaction throughout the year,” said Paul Kaiser, chief executive officer of MedeAnalytics. “Our clients can also trust our Quality Management solution to provide scalable, quality reporting with speed and accuracy.”
Quality Management is part of MedeAnalytics’ Value Based Performance product line, which also includes Population Health. Delivery systems, health plans, ACOs and clinically integrated networks that leverage Population Health can gain unparalleled insight into clinical quality, utilization and cost metrics.
