Partnership will enable payers to improve measures prior to HEDIS submission with Aerial platform
Alpharetta, GA – SPH Analytics, a leader in healthcare analytics and population health management, and Medecision, a leader in integrated health platform solutions, announced today a strategic partnership to help health plans improve the quality of care their members receive and lower related costs. This partnership adds SPH Analytics’ award-winning Quality Measuressolution to Medecision’s Aerial platform, so care managers can quickly and easily identify, monitor, and close care gaps, improving quality measures prior to regulatory submission.
The solution will be driven by SPH Analytics’ certified quality measure engine, which previews measure performance in advance of required Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) data submission so that health plans can drive early intervention and performance. HEDIS is the measurement tool used by more than 90 percent of the nation’s health plans to evaluate their performance in terms of clinical quality and customer service, as established by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).
“Health plans need strategic partners who understand their complex challenges in managing compliance and care for their members,” said Deb Gage, President and CEO of Medecision. “Our collaboration with SPH Analytics enhances the power of Aerial and improves the value we provide to our clients.”
“Accurate, timely, and actionable quality data measurement is crucial to improving patient care,” said Amy Amick, President & CEO of SPH Analytics. “Our unmatched ability to map health data and calculate measures will provide the insight health plans need to improve their HEDIS measures and ultimately improve the health of their membership. The SPH Analytics partnership with Medecision allows health plans to drive a higher quality standard in a compressed timeline, as together our companies will offer a seamless approach to gain clear insights partnered with a natural workflow to drive action.”
