Data Reporting Services

NCQA is responsible for recruiting, training, certifying and providing quality oversight to vendors or organizations who collect data both health plans and providers.

For Providers

eMeasure Certification
NCQA's eMeasure Certification (eMC) program is designed for organizations that develop, license, and sell quality-measure reporting software that calculates electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs) using electronic health record (EHR) data.

ONC Health IT Testing
NCQA has obtained ONC approval as an Authorized Test Lab (ATL). As an ONC-ATL, our testing method can be used by health IT developers for applicable ONC Health IT Certification Program eCQM certification criteria, in addition to NCQA’s recognition and reporting programs, such as for Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) recognition and HEDIS reporting.
