About measure certification
The National Committee for Quality Assurance’s (NCQA) Measure Certification program validates organizations that develop, license and sell HEDIS®, VBP4P and other quality-measure reporting software that calculates measures using administrative data sources.
Organizations that earn certification demonstrate to partners and customers that coded measures meet current NCQA standards, improve the accuracy of reporting measures and produce reliable, comparable results.
Accuracy is critical for health plans, provider organizations and others that rely on data to make decisions for quality reporting and value-based contracting. By earning NCQA Measure Certification, organizations know their measure logic has gone through the industry’s most rigorous assessment.
