Vizient agreement with Medisolv offers providers two solutions for quality reporting requirements
To help member hospitals and affiliated physicians simplify the performance reporting requirements for quality data, Vizient, Inc. announces an agreement with Medisolv, Inc. for its quality reporting and management software solutions.
The agreement includes software solutions that enable the capture and submission of electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) by hospitals and Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) data from eligible clinicians in ambulatory or inpatient settings.
Quality reporting is complex and places a significant reporting burden on hospitals and providers. Submission of electronic quality data is mandatory for hospitals (CMS IQR, TJC ORYX®) and could put Medicare revenue at risk for those who do not successfully meet reporting requirements. Providers get extra bonus points for reporting quality data electronically in MIPS.
These solutions will help to alleviate this burden by making reporting more efficient. Users can drill down to the patient-level details and visually understand measure logic for easy data validation without the need for custom programming. The tools will also help to create a more comprehensive quality program that will assist hospitals and providers in meeting their regulatory and accreditation program requirements.
“Hospitals and their affiliated physicians are experiencing increasing data submission requirements related to payments and public reporting,” said Bharat Sundaram, president, analytics and advisory services at Vizient. “We are excited about the agreement with Medisolv because we believe these software tools will not only streamline reporting but also give members new data transparency into how they are performing in quality measures throughout the year.”
The Vizient agreement with Medisolv includes ENCOR for Electronic Measures module (2015 ONC Certified) for hospitals and the Eligible Clinicians module (MIPS) for providers.
The software solution offers:
- Ability to drill down to patient-level details
- Flexible data loads for near-real-time performance measures
- Submission services for both hospital and provider reporting programs
- Support for CMS and The Joint Commission audits
- Submission-ready data files for the CMS IQR, QPP and TJC ORYX® programs
Additionally, Vizient members are assigned a dedicated Medisolv clinical advisor to provide product training, support, data validation assistance and guidance on regulatory compliance issues.
“Our collaboration with Vizient will provide their members with advanced software tools to easily comply with the mandates of quality reporting programs, including eCQMs,” said Dr. Zahid Butt, chief executive officer for Medisolv. “Preparing hospitals and physicians to meet the ever-changing demands of a value-based world is challenging. With Medisolv’s suite of comprehensive quality solutions, health systems will be able to achieve superior levels of performance critical to both payments and public reporting.”
