BOSTON (June 1, 2022) –1upHealth, a market leader with healthcare’s most complete FHIR® data platform, announced today that it is one of six healthcare organizations selected by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) to participate in its inaugural Digital Quality Solutions pilot. The companies represent health plans, delivery systems and health information technology firms. Pilot organizations will give feedback on the usefulness, feasibility and value of NCQA’s software offering including its implications for HEDIS measure reporting and its value-added contribution to advance quality improvement and care management efforts.
The pilot will last approximately six months and will involve numerous workshops and working feedback sessions with the participating organizations.1upHealth Chief Strategy Officer and former National Coordinator for Health IT, Don Rucker, M.D., MBA, M.S., will act as the executive sponsor to lead the company’s efforts with NCQA.
“We are honored to be selected as a pilot partner to advance healthcare’s move towards digital quality measures that can improve outcomes in real time,” said Dr. Rucker. “It starts with a modern, scalable cloud environment that can handle vast amounts of disparate data, clean it up, and make it usable.”
The 1upHealth FHIR® data platform is purpose-built to deliver broad-scale interoperability and analytical capability across a patient-mediated network of 10,000+ clinical and payer endpoints using frictionless APIs. The 1up Platform is the easiest way to receive data from disparate sources, convert into a common FHIR® format, and send the data to partners and customers. Our native applications in a scalable cloud platform give healthcare organizations the ability to manage intake and to govern the use of data with granular access controls and field-level security. This modern infrastructure serves as a foundation for customers to gain meaningful answers from their data using familiar analytical tools such as SQL, and “bring your own analytics” to deploy “containerized analytics.”
“We are excited to work with NCQA as a digital quality trailblazer,” said Joe Gagnon, CEO of 1upHealth. “Our company was built with the purpose of providing a modern architecture to replace one that is largely paper-based or uses flat files. We are looking forward to helping NCQA with its mission of making HEDIS and quality measurements more relevant, actionable and closer to the point of care.”
