Health Plan’s Decision Will Enable Real-Time Quality Analytics Reporting Year-Round, More Efficient Medical Record Abstraction, and Streamlined HEDIS® Submissions
April 29, 2020, NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA – Vital Data Technology, LLC, a data science driven healthcare information technology company, today announced Hometown Health Plan selected their cloud-based, HEDIS® solution Affinitē Quality™. The health plan joins peers nationwide seeking to leverage Affinitē’s integrated advanced analytics and algorithms embedded with National Committee on Quality Assurance (NCQA) Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) measures. This solution allows health plans to prioritize, stratify and micro-target members throughout the year to close care gaps year-round, while streamlining the annual HEDIS® submission process required by NCQA.
Hometown Health, the insurance division of Renown Health, is northern Nevada’s largest and only locally-owned not-for-profit insurance company. In an effort to improve their quality scores overtime, Savannah Gonsalves, Quality Manager, noted, “Our goal was to move to a solution that was easier to use and enabled us to perform medical record abstraction, the process of collecting important information from a patient’s medical record and transcribing that information into another electronic health record.” She added, “We appreciate Affinitē Quality’s navigation and design because it takes into account the work we do to close care gaps by making repetitive tasks like medical record retrieval easier and less time consuming.”
Vital Data Technology’s Affinitē Quality™ solution, part of the Affinitē platform, accelerates quality improvement efforts by aggregating every measure into a single “Quality Scorecard” view with drill-down capabilities displaying measure-by-measure performance across multiple dimensions for daily quality improvement and real-time quality performance reporting. The solution drives workflow efficiencies and data accuracy through multi-level administrative control, year-round medical record abstraction and review, and alleviates error-prone workload increases during HEDIS® submission season.
“Hometown Health is dedicated to serving the health and well-being of their members. We are joining them in this pursuit by providing outstanding service and a quality solution powerful enough to streamline compliance and drive quantifiable quality improvements,” stated Matt D’Ambrosia, Chief Executive Officer of Vital Data Technology.
