Newport Beach, California – Vital Data Technology, LLC (https://vitaldatatech.com/), a data science driven healthcare information technology company, today announced Affinitē™ Quality™ has been awarded full Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) Certified MeasuresSM status by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). This certification validates that measures have passed the testing required to support the 2020 HEDIS reporting season. This includes CAHPS and hybrid measures. It is the seventh consecutive year the company has received HEDIS certification from NCQA.
Affinitē Quality, part of the Affinitē platform, is the only HEDIS solution accredited by NCQA which enables health plans to seamlessly align quality management with care coordination, provider engagement, risk adjustment and member activation, end-to-end, year-round. “In 2014, health plans viewed our approach as novel. Now they are rapidly adopting the solution to fuel their pursuit of quality outcome improvement by alleviating technical, functional and operational barriers,” noted Matt D’Ambrosia, Chief Executive Officer of Vital Data Technology.
Unlike traditional approaches, where health plan quality professionals are disconnected from care managers, risk professionals and providers, Vital Data Technology’s Affinitē platform aligns these stakeholders by extending the quality module’s 360° view of every member’s measure-by-measure quality performance in real-time. This enables plans and providers to collaborate, stay aligned on measure score performance and alleviate repetitive phone calls and faxes to close quality care gaps. “This coordinated alignment of stakeholders, systems and solutions – combined with the fact that our company has never had to recertify any measures – gives payers a reliable HEDIS management and submission solution that is able to drive improved outcomes,” noted Mr. D’Ambrosia.
Affinitē Quality is the year-round HEDIS® and plan-defined quality management and submission module of Vital Data Technology’s Affinitē platform. It provides real-time tracking of plan members and their applicable quality goals, giving health plan professionals the power to prioritize micro-targeted member groups and efficiently resolve care gaps. Built-in workflows operationalize quality validation and controls for streamlined provider communications. The solution electronically stores structured and unstructured data – including free-form notes – ensuring every interaction is documented and tracked. Affinitē Quality keeps health plans apprised of their progress toward measure improvement year-round, while streamlining HEDIS season reporting for NCQA compliance.
