8.24.2018 How does Physician and Hospital Quality Certification help our organization?

Health plans increasingly use physician quality information for value-based contracting, pay-for-performance programs, provider networks, physician tiering and more. Because payers make decisions based on these data, how data are measured is important.

The NCQA Certification process helps ensure that health plans and provider networks make decisions based on sound methodology, and assures patients and physicians that those decisions are transparent and that quality is not sacrificed to cost.
