  • Solution Enables Hospitals and Physicians to Efficiently Manage and Report Quality Performance  

    Chicago, [March 15, 2016] – The American Hospital Association (AHA) today announced it has exclusively endorsed Quality Reporting and Management Solution from Medisolv Inc. Following a proprietary due diligence process, AHA Solutions, Inc., a subsidiary of the AHA, awards the AHA Endorsement to products and services that help member hospitals and health care organizations achieve operational excellence.

    Many hospitals are acquiring physician practices to form clinically integrated networks in order to improve quality of care, enhance population health and reduce the total cost of care. As health systems transition from volume- to value-based care and grow their physician base, they face greater accountability for managing their physicians’ performance in and beyond the hospital.

    The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS), Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS), Value-based Payment Modifier (VBPM) and similar programs for hospitals linking payments to quality provide strong incentives for eligible providers and hospitals to demonstrate high performance by satisfactorily reporting on a large number of specific quality measures increasingly mandated as electronic quality measures (eCQMs).

    Medisolv’s ENCOR Quality Reporting and Management software suite helps hospitals and physicians efficiently measure and report quality data to meet evolving requirements, improve performance and patient safety, and deliver value-based care. From one integrated platform, hospitals can now manage performance improvement and report accurate quality measures data. Deployed within a hospital’s intranet, the software integrates with all forms of electronic health record and other information systems to convert large volumes of existing clinical, operational and financial data into actionable information.

    ENCOR automates daily abstraction of core measures; simplifies management and reporting of Meaningful Use and electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs); displays daily updates on key hospital claims measures; allows eligible providers to easily capture and report eCQM data; and provides data dashboards so hospitals and providers can monitor performance and take corrective action. Beyond software, Medisolv’s solution offers the services of quality, analytics, clinicians and software experts to advise providers and practices in performance improvement strategies and guide hospitals during the solution’s highly organized implementation process.

    “Medisolv’s Quality Reporting and Management Solution enables hospitals and their associated physicians to measure, monitor and improve quality, cost and efficiency,” said Tim Steffl, chief operating & development officer, AHA Solutions. “The solution is distinguished by its comprehensive scope, which includes support for all three types of quality measures (abstraction, claims and eCQMs), and for ambulatory, outpatient and inpatient quality programs. It also stands apart for its implementation success — confirmed by its 95 percent client retention rate — in more than 300 hospitals.”

    “It is an honor to receive the exclusive endorsement by the American Hospital Association for quality reporting and management solutions,” said Zahid Butt, MD, CEO of Medisolv. “For over 15 years, hospitals and physicians have successfully used Medisolv software to analyze, improve and report their quality data. This recognition by the AHA motivates us to reach even higher levels of performance and customer service. AHA members will benefit from the extensive evaluation done by AHA Solutions through its AHA Signature Due Diligence Process™ and can be confident in choosing Medisolv as their long-term partner in quality reporting and value-driven health care.”
