January 25th, 2016

BOSTON, Jan. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- QPID Health, which helps hospitals and medical groups achieve their quality goals with software that generates actionable information from electronic health records, has achieved ONC HIT 2014 Edition Modular Ambulatory EHR certification for its QPID Health Quality Reporting software. The certification designates that the software is capable of supporting eligible providers with meeting the Stage 1 and Stage 2 Meaningful Use measures required to qualify for funding under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).  

QPID Health Quality Reporting software (version 4.5) was certified on January 5, 2016 by ICSA Labs, an Office of the National Coordinator-Authorized Certification Body (ONC-ACB) and is compliant in accordance with applicable criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS).

"We believe that we can provide our customers a way to successfully demonstrate Meaningful Use while streamlining the reporting processes," said Michael J. Doyle, FACHE, president and CEO, QPID Health. "QPID Health's unique approach speeds the discovery of evidence for quality reporting and compliance, dramatically lowering the costs of reporting. Since the software locates patient information related to quality measures in free form text as well as structured data fields, providers get full credit for the care they are delivering."

The clinical quality measures supported include those required for reporting via the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) Group Reporting Option Web Interface (GPRO-WI). These measures can be used by many eligible physicians to track and report on quality metrics and demonstrate compliance. For example, those participating in Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) can use these measures and report via the GPRO-WI to qualify for Meaningful Use. Those selecting the GPRO-WI reporting option can report once for PQRS, Meaningful Use, and the Value-Based Payment Modifier.

QPID Health software captures and exports clinical quality measures from electronic health record (EHR) and other clinical systems. The Quality Reporting application highlights, by measure, where there are gaps in data or where user review and attestation is needed. For example, if a patient has received an immunization outside of the provider's network at a walk-in clinic, this fact might only be noted in a visit note, not in a the immunization field. QPID Health will find that note and flag it for the user, who can attest to the measure. Further, an audit trail of all such attestations in maintained.
