Georgia physicians are now accessing powerful performance data through Health
Paradigm, a new physician-led health information network, endorsed by the Medical Association of Georgia.
Paradigm is pleased to announce that its partner, KaMMCO Health Solutions, received the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) certification for all of the original 25 Electronic Clinical Quality Measures (eCQMs) for 2017 and are adding 14 more for 2018.
eCQMs are indicators of the quality of care provided to a patient, including measures that reflect management of chronic disease, preventive care received, use of appropriate medications and overall cost of care reductions. These indicators are important reporting mechanisms in the new era of Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and Alternative Payment Models (APM) in the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services' Quality Payment Programs initiated this year.
NCQA certification of the Health
Paradigm reporting capability assures providers and payers that the new technology has undergone rigorous and extensive testing. Health
Paradigm can now offer HIE clients with live data in the exchange the ability to leverage the aggregated data in yet another actionable way through eCQM reports. This is a critical differentiator when comparing Health
Paradigm analytics capabilities to traditional EHR vendor-based analytics reporting.
Paradigm analytics product compiles, aggregates and reports data from all providers participating in the HIE, and computes the quality metrics across all of the providers the patient has received care from, delivering a more accurate picture of the patient's longitudinal medical record. This reporting method and the resulting data analytics enhance a provider's ability to successfully report quality measures.
