Quality Data Services
Complete quality reporting, on demand
Our Quality Data Center (QDC) is a complete SaaS clinical quality measurement and reporting solution to meet the performance measurement needs of our customers, including PQRS reporting, meaningful use attestation, and Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) and Accountable Care management. The QDC is an approved PQRS Data Submission Vendor (DSV) and Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QDCR). It is ONC-ATCB certified as an EHR module for meaningful use clinical quality measures. We support over 160 industry standard measure definitions and unlimited custom measure development. Our QDC team assists with extraction and aggregation of clinical data from EHRs, HIEs and other source systems using industry standard protocols.
In addition, the QDC supports meaningful use reporting via specialized registry, which enables eligible providers (EPs) to complete the new stage 2 public health related menu objective. Specialized registry reporting may provide many EPs with a menu option that is more aligned with their scope of practice. This objective may provide meaningful use credit to those EPs engaged in the beneficial use of Certified Electronic Health Record Technology (CEHRT) to report specific cases to specialized registries.
“We implemented electronic health records in 2012 with the assistance of the Massachusetts eHealth Collaborative. Their assistance, advice and expertise were invaluable to our process from the implementation to helping us achieve meaningful use . Her guidance provided us with the tools we needed to be successful and I highly recommend this agency and their staff.”
