Vizient Agreement with Medisolv Offers Enhanced Solution for Core Measures Abstraction and Regulatory Reporting
Columbia, MD, April 23, 2019— To better assist member hospitals in successfully meeting their reporting requirements of chart-abstracted core measures, Vizient, Inc. announces an agreement with Medisolv, Inc. for its ENCOR Quality Management Platform. This new agreement builds on Vizient’s existing, successful relationship with Medisolv for their electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) management solution.
Submission of chart-abstracted core measures to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and The Joint Commission (TJC) is mandatory and a complex process for hospitals. Providers who do not successfully meet reporting requirements put Medicare reimbursement or accreditation status at risk. The ENCOR Abstracted Measures application and the accompanying dashboards offered by Medisolv will help alleviate Vizient members’ burden by improving the efficiency of core measures reporting while also offering insights for performance improvement.
“The complexity of core measures reporting requires a solid abstraction tool, performance monitoring capabilities as well as support services,” said Bharat Sundaram, president, performance improvement services at Vizient. “We are excited about the agreement with Medisolv because we believe it provides an easy to use abstraction platform and gives our members tools to track efficiency and compliance with the core measures program throughout the year.”
The ENCOR Quality Management Platform is an integrated suite of applications designed to measure and improve performance on more than 500 national quality and safety measures using EHR and other health system data. The agreement with Medisolv offers Vizient members:
- Easier case abstraction with pre-populated demographic select clinical data and advanced skip logic
- Dynamic measure status toolbar to help visually identify measure status prior to the completion of a worksheet
- Context-sensitive help feature on worksheets
- Robust set of internal reports that ensure data quality, measure provider efficiency and monitor performance by physician, measure set or strata
- Simplified data submission with Medisolv submitting files directly to both CMS and TJC
- Interactive dashboard with drill down capability to support the hospital in monitoring the quality measure performance of all their hospitals and practices including historical trending from one central location.
The Medisolv abstraction software and related services included in the Vizient Clinical Data Base (CDB) subscription, will enable hospitals to create a more comprehensive quality program that will assist in meeting their regulatory and accreditation program requirements. Additionally, Vizient members are assigned a dedicated Medisolv clinical advisor to provide product training, support, data validation assistance and guidance on regulatory compliance issues.
“This agreement will offer Vizient members our advanced tools to easily manage and comply with the mandates of core measures reporting programs,” said Dr. Zahid Butt, chief executive officer for Medisolv. “Preparing hospitals and physicians for success in the ever-changing world of value-based payments is a key goal of our collaboration with Vizient. With Medisolv’s Best in KLAS quality management software, health systems are able to achieve superior levels of performance while also reducing revenue and accreditation risks.”
