Norristown, Pa. January 24, 2024 – MRO Corp., the leading clinical data exchange company in healthcare, announced today that it has earned the Validated Data Stream designation in the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Data Aggregator Validation program. It is part of the latest NCQA cohort to earn the NCQA validation.

“MRO is excited to earn data stream validations for a third time and to continue 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,” says Jason Brown, CEO at MRO. “Within our payer solutions we are enabling core health plan capabilities and improving functional operations through interoperable data connectivity across provider networks. This validation process removes administrative burdens for both payers and their networked providers and shows our organization’s commitment to data quality.”

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, validated data streams adhere to NCQA process, system and data standards.

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.

In addition to passing 100 percent of the most recent cluster in the NCQA Data Aggregator Validation Program, MRO has received a HEDIS Allowable Adjustment Certification from NCQA for 18 HEDIS measures. This certification ensures that vendors have expertise and capabilities to calculate HEDIS Measures accurately, providing many benefits to clients.

“CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield (CareFirst) congratulates MRO on this certification. We look forward to seeing how the designation impacts use cases across our enterprise as we advance clinical data exchange in our network,” said Piyush Khanna, VP for Clinical Services at CareFirst, one of the country’s largest not-for-profit healthcare organizations.
