The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Certifies Jiva for 10 HEDIS® 2019 Measures
HEDIS Measures Help Health Plans Improve Performance, Reduce Costs, and Streamline Workflow
PLANO, Texas – February 22, 2019 – The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), a private, nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the quality of healthcare, has certified measure logic in Jiva, the industry’s leading population health management (PHM) platform from ZeOmega®. Jiva is certified for 10 Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) 2019 measures.
HEDIS is one of healthcare’s most widely used performance improvement tools. It helps the nation’s health plans evaluate their performance in terms of clinical quality and customer service. With HEDIS certification, Jiva users can rest assured the platform’s solutions meet NCQA reporting requirements, saving organizations precious time and effort.
“Health plans using Jiva can continuously track HEDIS-related performance indicators while immediately identifying and addressing gaps in care,” says Founder, Chairman of the Board, and CEO of ZeOmega Sam Rangaswamy. “Our platform delivers actionable information in real time to all stakeholders in the continuum of care. By receiving that crucial member information at just the right moment, care teams can heighten performance and improve overall outcomes. Everyone wins.”
Jiva not only monitors performance, but also identifies members that have yet to meet the target of the measure and develops a plan to intervene before the measurement period ends. Once intervention opportunities are identified, health plans can give attention to areas of concern prior to year-end evaluations. This helps streamline workflow, reduce per-capita cost of care, improve HEDIS performance, and enhance the health of populations. With Jiva certified on 10 HEDIS measures, it speaks to the platform’s ability to truly help health plans on their journey to value-based care.
NCQA accredits and certifies a wide range of healthcare organizations and manages the evolution of HEDIS, the performance measurement tool used by more than 90 percent of the nation’s health plans. HEDIS is designed to provide purchasers and consumers with the information they need to reliably compare performance. Since its introduction in 1993, HEDIS has evolved to become the gold standard in managed care performance measurement. Its reporting enables employers, consultants, and consumers to evaluate and compare the performance of health plans in areas ranging from preventive care and consumer experience to heart disease and cancer.
