IMI Health announced that it has earned National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Healthcare. From a press release:
HEDIS software calculates standard measures to support annual audit and reporting requirements for health plans, and IMI Health’s NCQA-Certified software helps health plans measure quality and lower audit requirements. HEDIS specifications are updated annually and software vendors must make changes to comply with the measures and gain certification each year. All U.S. health plans seeking NCQA Accreditation must comply annually with the calculation of standard measures and completion of an audit. Health plans that select a certified software vendor are exempt from source code review. Health, plans even without the mandate for review and audit, can benefit by proactively using HEDIS measures to demonstrate their effectiveness.
