Health plans and providers can rely on data from Manifest MedEx for HEDIS® quality reporting for second consecutive year
Emeryville, Calif. – December 22, 2021 – Manifest MedEx (MX), California’s leading nonprofit health data network, announced today that it has earned the Validated Data Stream designation in the new National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Data Aggregator Validation program. This means that health plans can use validated data from Manifest MedEx for Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) reporting, without needing to obtain the data from individual providers and validating the data.
This marks the second consecutive year that MX’s clinical data has passed the rigorous validation process from NCQA. MX is among only 10 organizations in the country with validated data streams and the only organization in California to earn this designation. The health data network shares data for 28 million patients across 125 hospitals, 10 health plans, and more than 1,500 ambulatory sites throughout the state.
The NCQA’s Data Aggregator Validation program validates that data provided from the original source accurately reflect data reported for use as standard supplemental data in HEDIS audits. Health plans can use this validated data for HEDIS reporting without additional primary source verification. This reduces the time health plans spend assembling patient charts and confirming accurate data. It also reduces the burden for providers. With MX, providers only need to share and validate data once, rather than responding to “chart chases” and validation requests from multiple health plans every year.
“This program helps reduce the burden of HEDIS reporting,” said Claudia Williams, Chief Executive Officer, Manifest MedEx. “Our health plan and provider partners can devote more time and energy to supporting and caring for their patients and communities and less time chasing charts.”
Health plans or providers interested in using MX’s standard supplemental data for HEDIS reporting should contact Adam Harrison, Chief Growth Officer, Manifest MedEx at firstname.lastname@example.org.
