HIE adds product certified by National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA)
HealthlinkNY, New York State’s Health Information Exchange for the Hudson Valley, Catskills, and the Southern Tier, announced that they have selected Diameter Health’s Quality product to provide quality data reporting certified by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
“Our priorities are improving quality of care, reducing cost, and ensuring better outcomes,” said Staci Romeo MBA, Interim Executive Director of HealthlinkNY. “Diameter Health is a key strategic partner as we continue to implement new capabilities. Their Quality product is a certified solution that will help us achieve our ambitious goals.”
“We are gratified in the confidence and trust that HealthlinkNY has demonstrated in us, and very pleased to add them to a rapidly growing number of Quality customers at Diameter Health,” said CEO, Eric Rosow. “We look forward to continuing to grow and develop with HealthlinkNY as we continue to improve the interoperability of clinical data.”
Diameter Health is currently certified for more of NCQA’s e-clinical measures than any other firm. The list of certified measures can be found at http://www.ncqa.org/hedis-quality-measurement/data-reporting-services/emeasure-certification/current-vendor-information.
“Diameter Health’s Quality product provides standard supplemental data for Health Information Exchanges to meet the emerging needs of providers and health plans to evaluate value-based contracts and support HEDIS and STAR performance metrics,” said Rosow. “Diameter Health is well positioned to take advantage of the explosive growth in clinical data and the growing need to integrate disparate sources and put them to practical use.”
Diameter Health enables clinical insight through the normalization, cleansing, de-duplication and enrichment of clinical data from across the care continuum. This creates a single, unified source of longitudinal structured patient information for improved care and actionable analytics. The Diameter Health platform empowers organizations that depend on multi-source data streams, such as Health Information Exchanges (HIEs), Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), health systems and health plans, to realize greater value from their data.
