NCQA certification means that along with being recognized as leading diabetes care providers, many of our physicians qualify for rewards available through various pay-for-performance programs.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
Wellcentive, an industry leader in population health management and analytics solutions, announces that it has successfully completed the rigorous process required for Advance Outcomes Manager to become certified by NCQA.
NCQA is a private, non-profit organization dedicated to improving health care quality. NCQA accredits and certifies a wide range of health care organizations and manages the evolution of HEDIS®, the performance measurement tool used by more than 90 percent of the nation’s health plans. NCQA developed the Diabetes Recognition Program (DRP) to recognize clinicians who use evidence-based measures and provide excellent care to their patients with diabetes.
Wellcentive Advance™ Outcomes Manager is an end-to-end Population Health Management and Analytics solution that delivers seamless data aggregation; proactive data management; a comprehensive, customizable library of quality measures; and provider and patient engagement. Robust analytics deliver insights into performance and quality throughout the continuum of care.
According to Frank Murphy, Wellcentive President & CEO, “The value of NCQA certification to the providers who use Advance Outcomes Manager is significant. Certification means that along with being recognized as leading diabetes care providers, many of our physicians qualify for rewards available through various pay-for-performance programs. While the certification process was rigorous, it was important for us to complete the due diligence required to qualify.”
In addition to comprehensive population health management and analytics, providers who use Advance Outcomes Manager gain the additional benefits of using NCQA-certified software:
- Easily qualify for NCQA recognition as an outstanding provider, producing the required patient data reports with a single click
- Attract and retain patients seeking high-performing physicians for primary and specialty care
- Qualify for rewards and incentives available through various pay-for-performance programs
- Improve clinical outcomes through more proactive, coordinated, comprehensive care
Added Murphy, “Earning certifications from organizations like NCQA is a major Wellcentive initiative. NCQA’s focus on diabetes is extremely relevant to any health system or provider that must manage chronic diseases – which are, of course, a major driver of healthcare costs. Both Wellcentive and NCQA share the same mission: to provide clinicians with tools to support the delivery and recognition of consistent high quality care. We will continue to seek out and qualify for certifications that will deliver value to our providers and help them continue to improve both clinical and financial outcomes.”
