The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Certifies Jiva for HEDIS® 2020 Allowable Adjustments Measures
HEDIS Measures Help Health Plans Improve Performance, Reduce Costs, and Streamline Workflow
PLANO, Texas – September 29, 2020 – The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), has certified Jiva, the industry’s leading population health management (PHM) platform from ZeOmega®, for NCQA HEDIS Allowable Adjustments Certified MeasuresSM 2020. NCQA’s HEDIS Allowable Adjustments Measure Certification is precise, automated testing that verifies compliance with the Rules for Allowable Adjustments of HEDIS.
HEDIS is the measurement tool used by the nation’s health plans to 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.
“Our clients rely on Jiva’s Clinical Quality Dashboards and Gaps-in-Care to proactively monitor performance and enhance the quality of care for their members,” says Founder, Chairman of the Board, and CEO of ZeOmega Sam Rangaswamy. “ZeOmega is committed to the rigorous automated testing required for successful HEDIS certification to ensure the accuracy and reliability of Jiva.”
ZeOmega selected 30 measures for testing that reflect the broad range of coverage provided by Jiva for identification and management of population healthcare issues across the continuum. Areas for intervention include age-appropriate health and wellness indicators for preventive health and screenings, age- and condition-related measures such as Care for Older Adults, Controlling High Blood Pressure, Comprehensive Diabetes Care, and multiple behavioral health measures. By identifying intervention opportunities, health plans can direct resources to areas of concern prior to year-end evaluations. This helps streamline workflow, reduce per-capita cost of care, improve HEDIS performance, and improve outcomes for their populations.
