Diameter Health Achieves NCQA Certification for All 2017 eMeasures
First Company to be certified on all 2017 e-Clinical Quality Measures
Diameter Health, the company that cures clinical data disorder, has been certified by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) for all 25 of the 2017 eMeasures (eCQMs). Diameter Health is the only company currently certified for all 25 measures. For a list of all the certified measures, visit www.diameterhealth.com/certified-quality-measures
The NCQA eMeasure certification program is designed for companies that develop quality-measure reporting software that calculates quality measures using electronic clinical data. eCQMs enable organizations to track and monitor the quality of care they deliver. In addition, under new NCQA guidelines, data from certified eMeasure vendors may be used as standard supplemental data for HEDIS reporting.
“Achieving certification on all of the 2017 eMeasures for our Quality product is a tremendous company accomplishment,” said Eric Rosow, Diameter Health Chief Executive Officer. “And it demonstrates the power of interoperability standards in forging the future of digital health. We value our customer partners. I want to recognize KaMMCO Health Solutions, our partner, and the Kansas Health Information Network, our first Quality product customer. Laura McCrary and the KHS team demonstrated vision and foresight in anticipating the true potential of certified clinical quality data.”
“We congratulate Diameter Health on their outstanding achievement,” said Laura McCrary, Ed.D, Senior Vice President, KaMMCO Health Solutions, Inc. (KHS), and Executive Director, Kansas Health Information Network, Inc. (KHIN). “Diameter Health is a strategic partner of KHS, as well as a forward-thinking innovator in interoperability, eCQMs and clinical data management. We look forward to continuing to innovate with Diameter Health as HIE data is increasingly used for near real time analytics and to more accurately calculate quality measures.”
Diameter Health is now turning its attention to the 2018 NCQA certification process which includes a total of 55 measures. For a list of the 2018 measures, visit: www.diameterhealth.com/2018-quality-measure-certification/
