NCQA ONC Health IT Testing
NCQA’s electronic clinical quality measure (eCQM) testing method has been approved by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) for use in the ONC HIT Certification Program. Our eMeasure Certification program uses the same ONC-approved methodology, but the certification is used to reduce the audit on supplemental HEDIS data and is not part of the ONC program.
NCQA has also achieved NVLAP Accreditation and is now an approved ONC-Authorized Testing Lab (ONC-ATL).
NVLAP Lab Code 600170-0
NCQA tests and validates the integrity of an HIT organization’s software code that calculates eCQM results and produces Quality Reporting Document Architecture (QRDA) reports.
Organizations use eCQMs to track and monitor the quality of care delivered by providers that use electronic clinical data. Testing ensures that the measure code meets current standards, improves the accuracy of reporting measures and produces reliable and comparable results.
