September 9, 2019, NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA – Vital Data Technology, LLC, a premier healthcare technology innovator aligning data, systems and stakeholders for value-driven outcomes, today announced a multi-year engagement with MercyCareHealth Plans for their cloud-based,SaaS 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, risk stratify and micro-target members not meeting quality measure performance guidelines throughout the year, while streamlining the annual HEDIS® submission process required by NCQA.

April Hays, Director of Compliance, Quality and Audit Privacy Officer, shared her reasons for selecting the solution, “Affinitē Quality gives us timely and profound insight into our members’ quality status. The solution is thorough and intuitive, eliminating tedious data rework year-over-year– making the whole process much faster and more effective.”
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.
“Health plans like MercyCare are great client partners for us, because they value innovation and collaboration as we take HEDIS from an after-the-fact measurement of the quality process to a quality improvement solution that benefits the plan and their members year-round,” stated Matt D’Ambrosia, Chief Executive Officer of Vital Data Technology.
