Innovaccer Earns Status as Certified Data Partner for NCQA's Data Aggregator Validation Program
This certifies that the Innovaccer® Health Cloud has proven capabilities to support data stream validation through the NCQA's Data Aggregation Validation (DAV) program, and recognizes Innovaccer as a trusted partner for clinical data curation. As an NCQA Certified Data Partner, Innovaccer's health plan and provider customers, who are challenged to use DAV-certified data streams to support Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®)1 and other quality programs and reporting, can trust the Innovaccer Health Cloud's data streaming and validation capabilities to meet these essential requirements.
Being a Certified Data Partner for NCQA's DAV program means that the NCQ validates one or more clusters of clinical data that are ingested, processed, and ultimately exported by the Innovaccer Health Cloud as Continuity of Care (CCD) files. The NCQA evaluated the Health Cloud's data streams from the point of ingestion through output of CCD files, ensuring that its standards and protocols are met, and that the data provided from the original source accurately reflect what's reported for use as standard supplemental data for HEDIS® and other quality programs.
"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 Innovaccer are working to improve trust in clinical data and help ensure the data's accuracy and broader usability."
The Innovaccer Health Cloud offers a fresh approach to driving whole-person, value-based care. It breaks down data silos by unifying healthcare data into a single, longitudinal patient record in an open, secure, and scalable cloud data platform. In this unified data model, all healthcare data sources-including clinical, claims, labs, pharmacy, and even external third-party data sources such as social determinants of health (SDoH)-are cleaned, standardized, and integrated. The developer-friendly platform supports FHIR standards for healthcare data interoperability, and supports custom analytics models that can work across platforms and applications. And now, it is also certified by the NCQA for data stream validation and clinical data curation.
"This achievement speaks to our commitment to support the crucial industry standards that help our customers succeed," said Abhinav Shashank, cofounder and CEO of Innovaccer. "Data integrity and data security are fundamental prerequisites to value-based care. By helping our customers establish a rock-solid data fabric, and empowering them to leverage that data to do advanced analytics and quality reporting, we enable them to improve care, lower costs and deliver better patient experiences. We thank the NCQA for administering this program and are proud to serve as an NCQA Certified Data Partner."
