Validated Data Flows Promote Trust, Support Value-Based Contracting, Ease Quality Measurement Loads
Norristown, Pa. – April 10, 2023 – MRO Corp., a clinical data exchange company, is honored to announce that its platform has earned the Validated Data Stream designation for the second year in a row, in the new National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Data Aggregator Validation program. It was part of the latest NCQA cohort to voluntarily seek and earn the new NCQA validation.
“MRO is excited to announce that we have earned the Validated Data Stream designation for multiple EHRs. This designation allows us to forge a path forward in providing clinical data directly sourced from multiple EHRs, with proven accuracy, helping our provider and health plan partners save time and money during HEDIS reporting, while supporting contracting,” says Jason Brown, Chief Executive Officer at MRO.
The validation applies to EHR systems including: Allscripts Sunrise Clinical Manager/Allscripts Misys, Cerner Millennium/lDX, eClinicalWorks, Epic Caboodle, Meditech Expanse, Nextgen Enterprise, and Nextgen Office. Data streams that earn validation undergo a rigorous, end-to-end look at the quality and integrity of data and the procedures used to manage and safeguard it. From ingestion at primary sources through transmission to end users, the DAV Program verifies adherence to NCQA requirements and data standards.
Validation makes aggregated clinical data streams more valuable. Leveraging the consensus-based Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) audit process to prospectively validate clinical data flows promotes trust in aggregated clinical data assets — and in the insights drawn from these data sources. It is a boost for value-based contracting and, in combination with new federal healthcare technology standards, makes many of its core features truly routine.
Seen as a vital, early step in achieving NCQA’s vision of a digital measurement ecosystem, validated data flows also improve the efficiency of today’s quality measurement processes. Uniquely accepted as standard supplemental data in HEDIS® audits, no primary source verification is required for HEDIS reporting when health plans report data from Data Aggregator Validation validated sources.
