MedHOK Earns Full NCQA HEDIS Software Certification For 360Measures

Software recognized for its ability to ensure quality improvement and compliance for health plans by organizing data into actionable, sharable information that provides a 360-degree view of the patient

MedHOK has earned National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) Software Certification for 360Measures. Full HEDIS 2011 certification was achieved for 360Measures 1.56, which successfully passed all 62 measures included in the program.

"Earning NCQA HEDIS certification speaks volumes about the quality of the MedHOK suite of software solutions and validates our commitment to improving healthcare through enhanced clinical outcomes, care management and quality measures performance," said Anil Kottoor, president and CEO, MedHOK. "Certification also puts MedHOK in an elite group, as only a small number of software products successfully pass NCQA's rigorous review and evaluation process each year."

Built upon the Google framework for maximum flexibility and ease-of-use, 360Measures processes quality and performance data through a cloud computing environment. This enables proactive configuration, monitoring and sharing of quality and performance data via intuitive tracking tools and dashboard reporting with all participants in the healthcare ecosystem.

Pre-built data marts unify and link clinical, quality, operational and performance measures at member, provider and local population levels to calculate HEDIS rates, while business intelligence tools access and provide analysis of data across these multiple areas, including links to satisfaction surveys. This information can then be securely shared across the healthcare continuum for proactive end-to-end care management and measured against national quality standards.

ICD-10 compliant and HIE-ready, MedHOK features standards-based connectors to collect data from disparate systems, which is then aggregated, cleansed, standardized and optimized for use. The application of sophisticated analytics and smart interfaces drives improved clinical outcomes, care management, quality measures, compliance and financial performance.

NCQA Software Certification demonstrates to prospective health plan customers the product's integrity and its ability to produce accurate and reliable results. Health plans using NCQA-Certified Software save time and resources by forgoing the manual source code review portion of the HEDIS Compliance Audit and P4P Audit Review.

"NCQA-Certified software vendors make it easier for plans to develop HEDIS reports," said Mary Braman, NCQA's director of licensure and certification. "We commend the vendors who have earned certification for their commitment to quality."
