Healthjump has earned the Validated Data Stream designation in the new National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) Data Aggregator Validation program. It is part of the latest NCQA cohort to voluntarily seek and earn the new NCQA validation. 

What is the NCQA Data Aggregator Validation Program and Why Does it Matter?

The validation applies to Healthjump’s data streams. Data streams that earn validation undergo a rigorous, end-to-end look at the quality and integrity of data and the procedures used to manage and safeguard it. From ingestion at primary sources through transmission to end users, this designation verifies adherence to NCQA process, system and data standards.

Validation makes aggregated clinical data streams more valuable. Leveraging the consensus-based Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) audit process to prospectively validate clinical data flows, validation promotes trust in aggregated clinical data assets — and in the insights drawn from these data sources. It is a boost for value-based contracting and, in combination with new federal technology standards, makes many of its core features truly routine.

Seen as a vital, early step in achieving NCQA’s vision of a digital measurement ecosystem, validated data flows also improve the efficiency of today’s quality measurement processes. Uniquely accepted as standard supplemental data in HEDIS® audits, no primary source verification is required for HEDIS reporting when health plans report data from Data Aggregator Validation validated sources.

Why Did Healthjump Invest in this Designation?

Healthjump sought an opportunity to provide our current and future customers with the comfort of knowing that the data we ingest, manage and transmit aligns with the quality they are seeking from a data partner. Each completed phase of the process allowed us to showcase how Healthjump maintains high standards to meet the needs of healthcare organizations and vendors.

Throughout the 18-week journey, Healthjump met or exceeded each milestone and we are proud to have earned a Validated Data Stream designation from NCQA to provide our customers with the confidence that partnering with Healthjump ensures their data is valuable and accurate to provide supplemental data direct to payers without having to do post submission audits.

“Healthjump is bridging a gap that traditional interoperability can’t. Earning this Data Aggregator Validation designation shows our commitment to enabling health data liquidity between patients, providers, and researchers, that all members of the care community can trust,” said Cliff Cavanaugh, Founder and Chief Technology Officer at Healthjump.
