KANSAS CITY, Mo. (PRWEB) January 18, 2018
CareSeed, a leading provider of cloud-based healthcare solutions, today announced that its Forecast platform has successfully completed NCQA HEDIS® 2018 Measure Certification℠.
CareSeed was selected by NCQA as a beta-testing vendor for this year’s HEDIS and IHA Value Based Pay for Performance NCQA Measure Certification programs. As a beta vendor, CareSeed works together with NCQA to test measure data sets for completeness and accuracy prior to general use by other vendors seeking certification. This collaboration with NCQA allows CareSeed to provide its clients with certified measure results early in the HEDIS season.
The Forecast software solution leverages healthcare quality scoring algorithms to evaluate and improve the quality of care that health plans provide to their members. This certification demonstrates that Forecast produces accurate results, meeting NCQA’s standards and validation requirements for HEDIS 2018 quality measure reporting. "We value our collaboration with NCQA to achieve HEDIS 2018 Measure Certification. This program continues to expand our capability to provide our clients with the tools they need to provide better care," said Thomas Mueller, CareSeed’s CEO.
CareSeed offers software and services focused on healthcare quality improvement and HEDIS reporting. The Forecast solution calculates measure results, analyzes data trends, and identifies care gaps to engage health plan members and practitioners toward achieving improved health outcomes.
The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) is a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to improving healthcare quality. Since its introduction in 1993, the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) has evolved to become the gold standard in managed care performance measurement. Automating testing logic increases the rigor of HEDIS measure review and improves accuracy of reporting measures that are based on complex software logic.
