Arcadia Healthcare platform earns NCQA pre-validation


An analytics platform owned by Arcadia Healthcare Solutions, an electronic health record (EHR) data aggregation and analytics technology company, has achieved a patient-centered medical home (PCMH) 2014 pre-validation status from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

The certification means that Arcadia Analytics V4.10 platform qualifies as a product that will help providers increase efficiency around achieving PCMH status.

Arcadia has integrated accurate clinical dataset from disparate EHRs and claims and building intuitive, user-friendly tools to drill down to patient cohorts requiring action.

The new care management and patient outreach functionality adds workflows to take those actions directly within the Arcadia platform. The Arcadia Analytics Care Management module empowers users to engage with patients at scale, capture notes, collaborate with the care team, and push information back into the EHR.

The platform is prevalidated by NCQA to receive 14.5 points automatic credit toward NCQA’s PCMH 2014 scoring across the “Team-Based Care,” “Population Health Management,” and “Performance Measurement and Quality Improvement” categories.

Arcadia is now among a small list of prevalidated vendors, which ensures that customers using its analytics platform may now be eligible for reduced documentation when submitting for their NCQA PCMH recognition.

“Earning prevalidation status from NCQA for our population health and care management functionality is a great testament to the company’s data aggregation and analytics capabilities built in collaboration with our clients over the past five years,” said Sean Carroll, chief executive officer of Arcadia.

“It’s an honor for Arcadia to be included among such an exclusive group of analytics and population health vendors that have successfully achieved PCMH prevalidation status. This is just another differentiator for Arcadia as we continue to grow and win against our competition, bring on new clients, and build out our internal teams to drive measurable return on investment.”

Margaret O’Kane, president of NCQA, said: “By providing software that helps physician practices build the patient-focused, coordinated care infrastructure expected of NCQA patient-centered medical homes, Arcadia is helping practices be part of modern healthcare’s most important transformations. Medical homes are the way of the future, and the Arcadia Analytics platform is helping practices get there.”

The NCQA PCMH prevalidation program evaluates EHR systems, population health management tools, advanced registries, and other related technology solutions, and identifies products that will help providers increase efficiency around or even alleviate certain administrative aspects of achieving PCMH status.

A product must meet factor-level requirements within NCQA’s PCMH 2014 standards, and once it’s deemed “prevalidated,” the solution is awarded automatic credits that can then be transferred to provider practices. These credits eliminate the need for practices to separately document for the associated factors when they file for PCMH status.
