ALHAMBRA, Calif., Nov. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Apollo Medical Holdings, Inc. ("ApolloMed," and together with its subsidiaries and affiliated entities, the "Company") (NASDAQ: AMEH), a leading physician-centric, technology-powered healthcare company focused on enabling providers in the successful delivery of value-based care, today announced that ApolloMed received certification from the National Committee for Quality Assurance ("NCQA") for the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set ("HEDIS®"), following the development of its new HEDIS engine that identifies HEDIS gaps in care.
ApolloMed was certified by the NCQA HEDIS Health Plan Measure Certification Program™ for the measurement year 2022. This year's certified measures include Hemoglobin A1c Control for Patients with Diabetes (HBD), Blood Pressure Control for Patients with Diabetes (BPD), Kidney Health Evaluation for Patients with Diabetes (KED), Lead Screening in Children (LSC), and Child and Adolescent Well-Care Visits (WCV).
NCQA (www.ncqa.org) is an independent, non-profit organization that accredits and certifies a wide range of healthcare organizations. In addition, NCQA manages the evolution of HEDIS, the healthcare quality measurement tool used by more than 90 percent of health plans in the United States, covering 200 million people.
This certification allows ApolloMed to provide services that align with the industry's most rigorous clinical quality measurement processes, resulting in more accurate and timely identification of eligible members and services. Additionally, its new HEDIS engine was designed to increase interpretability and interoperability with other data engines and technologies.
Kevin Buchan, Jr., Ph.D., Director of Analytics of ApolloMed, said, "It was a challenging yet rewarding journey to implement a new HEDIS engine from scratch using various modern technologies to enhance and streamline the user experience. We made this investment to give our provider partners access to the information that will allow them to better understand how to continue improving upon the high-value care being delivered to their patients."
Yubin Park, Ph.D., Chief Analytics Officer of ApolloMed, stated, "Having received NCQA's certification for the HEDIS measures, we can better align our viewpoints with that of our payers and provider partners. In addition, combined with other data sources, our HEDIS engine will power various data analytics functions, uncovering potential causes for care gaps, such as social determinants of health."
Brandon Sim, Co-CEO of ApolloMed, added, "We are excited to add this new capability to our analytics portfolio. Accurately measuring clinical quality is a necessary building block to delivering high-quality, value-based care. ApolloMed is at the forefront of digitally enabled value-based care. We are one of six NCQA Digital Quality Solutions Pilot participants, and the learnings from the pilot put our certified HEDIS engine in a unique position that complements the new digital measure framework. We plan to share our digitally-enabled value-based care journey with many other provider partners, particularly those just beginning their transition to value-based care delivery."
