FRANKLIN, TENNESSEE, USA, June #1, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — i2i Population Health, a leading provider of healthcare data aggregation solutions, is proud to announce its successful completion of the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA)’s Data Aggregator Validation Program. This significant achievement further underscores i2i Population Health’s commitment to delivering high-quality and accurate healthcare data to its clients.
“We are thrilled to have completed the NCQA Data Aggregator Validation Program successfully,” said Justin Neece, CEO at i2i Population Health. “This accomplishment reinforces our dedication to excellence in healthcare data aggregation and further strengthens our position as a trusted partner for our clients. We are committed to providing accurate, secure, and interoperable data to support the healthcare industry’s evolving needs.”
The NCQA Data Aggregator Validation Program is a rigorous evaluation process designed to assess the ability of data aggregators to collect, aggregate, and transmit healthcare data securely and accurately. It ensures that organizations adhere to the highest industry standards and best practices in data aggregation, promoting interoperability and data quality across the healthcare ecosystem. The NCQA Data Aggregator Validation program evaluates clinical data streams to help ensure that health plans, providers, government organizations and others can trust the accuracy of aggregated clinical data for use in Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) reporting and other quality programs.
As part of the validation program, i2i Population Health underwent an extensive evaluation by NCQA experts. The evaluation encompassed an assessment of the company’s data collection processes, data aggregation methodologies, data transmission protocols, security measures, and overall data integrity. Through this meticulous evaluation, i2i demonstrated its unwavering commitment to data accuracy, privacy, and security.
“Over the past two decades, this country has invested heavily in digitizing clinical data. We
haven’t yet gotten the full value of that investment because the data are inconsistent, incomplete and unvalidated,” said Brad Ryan, MD, Chief Product Officer at NCQA. “NCQA’s Data
Aggregator Validation program brings trust, comparability and utility to clinical data streams for
use in HEDIS and beyond.”
By successfully completing the NCQA Data Aggregator Validation Program, i2i has affirmed its ability to provide healthcare organizations, payers, and providers with reliable and standardized data. This achievement validates the company’s commitment to delivering the highest level of service and data quality, empowering its clients to make informed decisions and improve patient care.
“NCQA’s Data Aggregator Validation program helps identify clinical data that can be trusted
and sets a high bar for how the data are managed,” said NCQA President, Margaret E. O’Kane.
“We are excited that organizations like i2i Population Health are working to improve trust in
clinical data and help ensure the data’s accuracy and broader usability.”
i2i’s successful completion of the NCQA Data Aggregator Validation Program demonstrates its ongoing efforts to enhance the quality, integrity, and interoperability of healthcare data. By aligning with the industry’s leading standards and best practices, i2i continues to play a pivotal role in advancing data-driven healthcare decision-making and improving patient outcomes.
